What Factors Affect Tires’ Life Expectancy?

When you ask anyone “how many miles should tires last?”, you’re likely to get a few different answers. It really depends on the following factors:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have better grip for quicker speeds, however, they usually wear down faster due to higher rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Tires usually comes with a treadwear rating, which is the estimated lifespan the tires should last.
  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently depending on if you have front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles. This is due to where the main power for forward motion comes from.
  • Road conditions: If your North Haven drive consists of traveling on gravel or dirt roads, you often drive through construction sites near Hamden, or live in an area where there’s, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires are likely to wear out more quickly. Offroading is also something to consider, as this could also wear out tires faster.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with steep hills, it will take more friction for the vehicle to move than on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: If you accelerate quickly or stop abruptly, the tires will wear out more quickly than if you coast to a stop.
