What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

There is a wide range of factors that can affect how long your tires last, from environment to driving habits on Laguna Beach roads, and more.

  • Drivetrain: Tires wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive vehicles, because of where the main power for forward motion comes from.
  • 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.
  • Road conditions: If you have to drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice, your tires will take more of a beating. If you plan to use your vehicle for off-roading, this will make a big difference as well.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with inclines on the roads, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than on flat surfaces.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Type of tire: High performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance–be sure to check your owner’s manual to see what tires you have on your vehicle, or what type is recommended.

How To Improve Tire Lifespan

There are many things that you as a driver can do to make sure your tire treads don’t wear down prematurely and that you don’t miss any small issues that can lead to bigger ones and require tire replacement:

  • You can your tire air pressure while you’re filling up on gas–many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • While you are checking the air pressure, you can also check the tire tread depth on each tire for signs of tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires regularly for more even distribution of tire wear, making the entire set of tires last longer
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance, and the service technicians can inspect, inflate, and rotate your tires, and be able to better tell when they need replacing.
