Generally, the tires that come on a new vehicle will last for about 50,000 miles. Most tire manufactures will state the specific lifespan of their tires so that you should be informed as to how many times they are good for when you purchase new tires.

The actual life of your tires depends on several factors:

  • The quality of the tire.
  • Is it a performance summer tire or an all-season tire?
  • The type of car and how the tire is mounted.
  • Treadwear rating, i.e., the expected length of tread life.
  • How the car is driven.

Did you realize that the four tires on your vehicle are the only parts of your vehicle that actually touch the road? So it is vital that you keep up with regular tire repair and maintenance, such as:

  • Proper inflation -- This will ensure optimal contact with the road, improving fuel economy and helping the tread wear more evenly.
  • Tire Rotation -- Moving your tires around to a different position on the vehicle will make sure they wear out in an even pattern. Typically, tires should be rotated every six months, or 6,000 to 8,000 miles, about every other oil change.
  • Wheel Alignment -- Alignment refers to an adjustment of the vehicle’s suspension so that the angles of the tires affect how they make contact with the road.
  • Balancing -- Balancing is done with wheel weights to achieve smooth rolling of the tire.

Quality tire service performed on a regular basis will ensure you get the most miles out of your tires while maximizing the safety of your vehicle.
