How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

There’s always an official answer to the question, “How many miles do tires last?” But sometimes the question to ask is, “How many miles should tires last?” When thinking about the mileage of a tire, you should also be thinking about the type of tire, the places you drive it, and how you drive it. Learn more about the life of a tire and the environmental influences that can lengthen or shorten it from the service team at Major World.

What Factors Affect Tire Life?

There’s a big list of factors that play a role, but we’ve lowered it down to a few that drivers around the Long Island City and Queens areas should take into account.

  • Drivetrain: Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive all distribute forward motion in their own way and can affect some tires more than others.
  • Types of Tire: High-performance tires have their benefits but can don’t last as long as all-season tires. Tires come with a tread wear rating to help you figure this out.
  • Road conditions: Are you regularly driving on dirt, gravel, or off-road? Has there been construction in the way of your commute for weeks or even months? Do you encounter snow, salt, rain, hail, or icy roads? Less-than smooth roads are a part of everyone’s life, and they will change your tire’s mileage.
  • Terrain: It’s not only what’s on the roads, but the slope of the roads. Higher inclines equal more friction equal more wear on tires.
  • Driving habits: Your driving habits can make a difference, as slamming the accelerator and brakes causes friction, whereas letting your vehicle coast to a stop can help lengthen the lives of your tires.

How to Inspect and Maintain Your Tires

Sometimes, the life of a tire depends on how often the car owner is checking out their tires for signs of wear and getting regular maintenance on their car. It helps immensely to find a dealer with a service department like the one at Major World. Here are a few ways that drivers from Brooklyn and Bronx can keep their tires in tip-top shape.

  • Check your air pressure on the regular at gas and service stations. 
  • Pay attention to tire tread depth and wear on your tire treads.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
  • Find a service department you trust that can provide regularly scheduled maintenance.
