Factors That Affect a Tires Lifespan

There are different answers to “How many miles do tires last?” and “How many miles should tires last?” Let’s take a look at some of the factors that affect tire health around Staten Island:

  • Type of tire: While high-performance tires give you the extra grip you need for thrilling rides, they may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: To get an idea of the life expectancy of your tire treads, each tire comes with a treadwear rating.
  • Drivetrain: Since certain wheels get more power depending on whether the vehicle is a front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, it means they’ll see a different amount of wear.
  • Road conditions: From inclement weather with snow, rain, and ice to uneven road conditions thanks to dirt, gravel, and construction, your tires are bound to take a beating. You’ll also see more frequent wear if you enjoy off-roading adventures. 
  • Terrain: While hills bring excitement to your straightforward paths, inclines add more friction on the tires than starting and stopping on flat surfaces. 
  • Driving habits: If you find yourself making quick starts and stops, you’ll see more wear faster than if you’re gradually accelerating and braking. 

Tips for Longer Lasting Tires

On top of modifying your driving habits, how many miles your tires should last can be extended by following these tips:

  • Check your vehicle’s owner’s manual to see the recommended tire pressure, and make a stop at the tire inflation station at your Bayonne-area gas station. 
  • Monitor the tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires on a regular schedule, so the tires get even wear.
  • Stay on top of your routine maintenance so a technician can notify you of any problems. Easily schedule your service online with Hudson Nissan.
