Are There Factors That Affect The Tires’ Life Expectancy? 

The questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” will often have different answers, and that’s due to several factors.

  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles, and that’s due to where the main power for forward motion comes from.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes wears out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and letting the coasting do some of the braking work for you.
  • Road conditions: If you regularly drive on gravel or dirt roads or encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take a beating. Going on lots of off-roading adventures will also make a difference.
  • Terrain: If you live where there are lots of inclines on the roads, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the car than on flat surfaces.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Type of tire: High-performance tires provide an extra grip, which can cause them to wear faster than all-season tires that have less rolling resistance.
