How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Car Tires


If you have new tires from the original equipment manufacturer, or OEM, or if you have high-quality replacement tires, you can expect them to last approximately 50,000 miles. This estimate doesn’t take into account how you drive, the type of terrain you’re on, etc. Learn more about the life of a tire at Riverside Buick GMC, contact your Rome-area service center if you have any more questions!

What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

So, how many miles do tires last and how many miles should tires last? While these questions are similar, they can have completely different answers depending on a number of factors that can include:

  • Type of tire: High performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles, because of where the main power for forward motion comes from.
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a big difference as well.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with inclines on the roads, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: Driving with a lead foot on the gas and brakes can cause your tires to wear faster than accelerating gradually and coasting.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

Though more cautious driving habits will help extend the life of your vehicle’s tires tremendously, there are a few other things to keep in mind that’ll help extend your vehicle’s tire life:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank, as many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
