What Affects Tire Life Expectancy?

While tires last about 50,000 miles, they should be replaced about every six years to ensure your safety on Carrollton roads. Over time your tire treads will wear down, and after six years, you’re sure to have diminished grip on your Coweta County commutes. However, the lifespan of your tires will be affected by your driving habits and the climate you live in.

Factors that can seriously affect how long tires should last include the following scenarios:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires will have extra grip, but they may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating that tells you the life expectancy of your tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Tires will wear differently on front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive cars based on where the power for forward motion comes from.
  • Road conditions: If you drive on gravel or dirt roads regularly, or you encounter construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice for most of the year, your tires will wear down faster.
  • Frequent Towing: Using your vehicle for frequent off-roading or heavy towing will also wear down your tires faster than normal.
  • Terrain: If you live in an area with many inclines, more friction on the tires is required to start and stop the vehicle than on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: If you’re a fast driver, having a lead foot on the gas and then braking hard will wear out your tires faster than accelerating gradually and coasting to a stop.
