What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy? 

The questions "how many miles do tires last" and "how many miles should tires last" can have different answers, depending on a few things.

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires that have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles, due to where the main power for the 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 take on a lot of off-roading adventures, 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 needed in order to start and stop the vehicle than when on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes wears out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and letting coasting do a little bit of the braking work.
