How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Rack of Tires

If you’re driving on original equipment manufacturer tires or high-quality replacement tires in Pekin, you can expect them to offer about a 50,000-mile lifespan. Join the experts at the Sam Leman Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram FIAT Morton service department as we explore the life of a tire and what you can do to help extend it.

What Are the Key Factors in Tire Life Expectancy?

“How many miles do tires last?” and “How many miles should tires last?” can warrant very different answers. It all depends on the following key factors:

  • Tire type
    • Driving on high-performance tires in Washington? Many drivers like the extra grip they get from such tires, but they do tend to wear out faster than all-season tires, which experience less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating
    • All tires come with a treadwear rating that tells you the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain
    • Depending on whether you drive a front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive vehicle, your tires will wear out at different rates due to the forward motion power coming from differing areas.
  • Road conditions
    • Frequently driving on dirt or gravel roads, streets that are under construction, and during inclement weather can really do a number on your tires. If you’re an off-road enthusiast, your excursions can also take a toll on your ride.
  • Terrain
    • If you live in a particularly hilly area in East Peoria, your tires will be exposed to more friction, which can speed up their wear.
  • Driving habits
    • It can be tempting to put the pedal to the metal after a long work day, but it’s in your tires’ best interest to accelerate gradually and coast into a full stop.

How to Get the Most from Your Tires

Being mindful of your driving habits is a huge help when it comes to extending the life of your tires, and following these additional tips can also make a difference:

  • Always stay on top of your regularly scheduled maintenance.
  • Make sure to get regular tire rotations each time you get an oil change.
  • Inspect your tire tread depth to check your tires’ wear.
  • Many gas stations have tire inflation stations, so it’s easy and convenient to inspect your air pressure from time-to-time after fueling up.
