How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Tires Stacked Up on Shelves

One of the most important components of your luxury Acura that ensures safe handling and support on Wimberley roads are your tires. Unfortunately your reliable OEM tires will have to be replaced eventually. So, you may be wondering how many miles do tires last? Or, more importantly, how many miles should tires last? High-quality all-season replacement tires can be expected to last between 50,000 and 70,000 miles, but there are many other factors at play that can alter that estimate. Learn more about how long your tires can last with the help of the Acura service technicians at Sterling Acura of Austin.


What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy?

As mentioned before, while there is a typical range your tires can last between, there are also many other factors that can cause your tires to wear much earlier than expected. These include:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires have extra grip but may wear faster than all-season tires which have less rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires also come with a treadwear rating, which rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

In addition to being more aware of your driving habits and the capabilities of your vehicle, you can also take steps to ensure your tires last and work their best. Perform the following tasks to ensure a long life for your tires:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank, as many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tires for more even distribution of tire wear.
  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance.
