Tires Lined Up in Warehouse

Tires are a vital component ensuring your safety and your vehicle’s optimal performance on Chilton roads. For that reason, you may have wondered “how many miles do tires last?” so you can become more aware of what causes tires to wear and how you can learn to prolong their life expectancy and overall condition. Read on below in this guide from our Vande Hey Brantmeier service department to discover how many miles should tires last!

How Many Miles Should Tires Last?

Most modern vehicles outfitted with new, standard, all-season tires can expect to go 50,000 miles to 70,000 miles before needing new tires. There are a few elements to consider that could cause the specific number of miles to vary somewhere within or below that range.

  • Tire type: What kind of tires do you want to equip your vehicle with? While all-season tires are the most common, performance tires, all-terrain tires, and touring tires are also an option, but they do wear more quickly.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires will come with a treadwear rating that can help you predict the life expectancy of your new tires for getting around Appleton and beyond.
  • Drivetrain: Depending on your vehicle’s drivetrain, your tires will wear differently. The tires that receive the power will wear faster. So, for example, a front-wheel drive vehicle’s front wheels are the most hardworking and will need to be replaced or properly rotated to last through their expected lifespan.
  • Road conditions: Think about where you typically drive in Green Bay. If you’re on lots of worksites, gravel roads, or heavy construction areas, your tires may wear more quickly and will need to be replaced more frequently.
  • Terrain: If you love to off-road or you need your vehicle for going on far-out adventures, consider the terrain you tackle. Driving on alternate terrain will require keeping a close eye on the health of your tires.
  • Driving habits: Demanding a lot from your gas and brakes will cause your tires to wear faster and thus need to be replaced sooner. Avoid aggressive driving habits and your tires will be more likely to live their expected mileage.
