How Long Should Tires Last?

Row of tires

Are you asking yourself “How many miles do tires last?” or “How many miles are tires good for?” Oak Lawn Toyota has the answer! Tires typically last around 50,000 miles, but this will depend on your driving habits and where you live. If you frequently drive on unpaved roads or you have a lead foot, your tires may need to be replaced sooner. Learn more about how many miles tires are good for and tire care tips with Oak Lawn Toyota below, then visit our tire center to get a new set of OEM Toyota tires!


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 Oak Lawn roads. Over time the materials in tires will wear down, and after six years there is an increased risk of a tire unraveling during your Evergreen Park commute. However, the lifespan of your tires will be affected by your driving habits and the climate you live in. Read below to see the different factors that affect how long tires should last. 

  • 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.
