How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Mechanic Removing Tire

As long as you’re relying on genuine OEM parts or trusted products, you can count on your Volkswagen tires to last for close to 50,000 miles on the roads near Madison. However, no estimate is perfect, the answer to the question, “How many miles do tires last?” is going to vary depending on how you drive. Thankfully, drivers in the East St. Louis area can do plenty to maximize the lifespans of their tires.

What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy? 

How many miles should tires last? In a perfect world, your VW tires would last for 50,000 miles or more. However, the real-world answer to the question is somewhat more complex. Here are a few of the factors that impact your tire life: 

  • What kind of tires are you using? – Performance tires may have better grip, and snow tires may keep you safe in the winter. However, all-season tires have the lowest rolling resistance, and they’ll tend to last longer on the roads near Caseyville.
  • What is your tire’s treadwear rating? – All tires carry a treadwear rating which assesses the length of time those products are expected to last. Choose a higher treadwear rating for longer-lasting tires.
  • What is your vehicle’s drivetrain? – Every driver appreciates the assurance offered by all-wheel drive, but vehicles with more active drivetrains may exhaust their tires at a faster rate. AWD vehicles also require more frequent tire rotation.
  • Where are you usually driving? – Do you spend a lot of time off-road, or on streets paved with dirt and gravel? If so, your tires will wear out faster than if you’d been driving on pavement.
  • What are your driving habits? – Sometimes, getting longer-lasting tires is as simple as laying off the gas and brake pedals. Coast more often to reduce wear. Towing or heavy payload hauling can also reduce your tire life, so remember not to work too hard!

How to Increase the Lifespan of Your Tires

If you’re anything like most drivers, you probably don’t pay enough attention to your tires! These deceptively simple components can make or break your driving experience, so don’t forget to perform the following checks and services:

  • Make sure you’re driving with the proper air pressure.
  • Regularly check your tire tread depth, and try to ensure even wear across all four tires.
  • Rotate your tires regularly to prevent them from wearing out at different rates.
  • Take your vehicle in for regular maintenance, suspension alignments, and brake service! When your car is working as it should, your tires will too!

How many miles should tires last with good care? There’s no perfect estimate. However, you only really need to trade up for new tires when your tread depth falls below 2/32 of an inch! The driver who takes good care of their tires might find that they last a lot longer than 50,000 miles.
