How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Mechanic with Tires

A new vehicle with the manufacturer tires or high-quality replacement tires should last for 50,000-miles. The life of a tire depends on the types of lifestyle you live, however. For example, if you drive on dirt roads often the treads of a tire can be worn out faster. At Wynn Volkswagen, we are your tire experts. Learn how many miles tires last with our expert service team below, or if you have a question about tires, give us a call!


What Affects the Life Expectancy of a Tire?

How many miles should tires last? Well, the answer depends on several factors. Typically tires have a life-span of 50,000-miles, however, there are other factors you need to consider when driving in King of Prussia:

  • Tire Type: Extra grip comes on high-performance tires instead of all-season tires, which have a less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear Rating: Treadwear rating comes on all tires. The higher the treadwear, the better the tire will perform.
  • Drivetrain: Your tires perform differently on front-wheel-drive, all-wheel drive, and rear-wheel drive. The main power differs on forward motion.
  • Road Conditions: Weather conditions and road conditions play a considerable role in the life expectancy of your tires. When your tires are exposed to salt, snow, rain, ice, etc, they will wear faster.
  • Terrain: Incline roads in Phoenixville add friction to your tires due to accelerating and stopping the vehicle.
  • Driving Habits: How you drive your car can affect your tires. If you have a lead foot or brake frequently as you drive, your tires will wear out more quickly.

Quick Tire Care Tips

In addition to becoming more aware of the roads your tires travel on, here are some quick tire care tips:

  • Inspect air pressure in your tires monthly
  • Check tire tread depth and look for wear and tear every month
