How Many Miles Do Tires Last?


How often should you replace your tires? If your vehicle has OEM tires or high-quality replacement tires, you can expect the set to last somewhere around 50,000 miles. However, this can vary based on your driving habits. Learn more about the life of a tire at Butler Auto Group. If you have any questions, we would be glad to assist you.

What Affects Tires Life Expectancy?

It is possible that the questions “how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last” will have differing answers. There are a couple of different factors that can determine how quickly your tires wear out and when they will need to be replaced. Keep the following factors in mind.

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip, but because all-season tires have less rolling resistance, they should wear more slowly.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Because the location where the majority of the power is sent varies depending on your drivetrain, tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles.
  • Road conditions: Your tires will wear down sooner if you do a lot of driving through snow, construction, ice, or gravel roads. Off-roading can also cause your tires to wear out more quickly.
  • Terrain: Driving in areas with a lot of inclines means that more friction is needed to stop the car and start it up again. This increase in friction can cause more tire wear.
  • Driving habits: Having a lead foot on the gas and brakes will wear out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and letting coasting do some of the braking work.
