In general, you can expect OEM tires to last 50,000 miles as you head around the roads in Hartford and beyond. Still, there are factors that can influence how much life you get out of your tires. Read on and we’ll tell you all about the factors that influence the question of “how many miles do tires last?” And if you’re looking for parts or service, you can count on the team at Manchester Mazda to do right by you.

What Factors Affect Tire Life Expectancy? 

You’re probably also asking “how many miles should tires last?” in Vernon. We’ve told you that the answer is 50,000 miles for a typical driver, but there’s a chance you might not be a typical driver. Here’s some factors that will change the answer to “how many miles should tires last?”

  • Tire type. If you have high-performance tires on your car, they’ll have extra grip which means less rolling resistance and a shorter lifespan.
  • Treadwear rating. For specific figures that will be unique to the tires on your vehicle, check on the sidewalls of your tires to find the tread wear rating.
  • Drivetrain. If you have an AWD car, you’ll have a different lifespan compared to RWD or FWD tires.
  • Road conditions. Go on dirt roads regularly or frequently hit bad weather in Glastonbury? You’ll have a shorter lifespan on your tires.
  • Terrain. If you’ve got a lot of hills where you live, you’ll put more wear on your tires going up and down them.
  • Driving habits. If you frequently hit the brakes or accelerate quickly, you’ll wear down on your tires quicker.
