How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Mechanic Removing Tire  

Generally speaking, new Ford tires from the Auffenberg Ford O'Fallon Parts Department and high-quality replacement tires last about 50,0000 miles. However, driving conditions around Collinsville may influence your tire health. Read on to learn more about tire care, and get in touch with our Service Center with any questions!

Tire Health Factors 

There's a difference between the questions, "How many miles do tires last," and "How many miles should tires last." That's because of the following tire health factors:

  • Tire Type: All-season tires have shallower treads, which may mean faster wear as compared with high-performance tires, which have extra grip due to deeper treads.
  • Ratings: Tires typically come with treadwear ratings, which give you an estimate of your tire tread life expectancy.
  • Drivetrain: The tires on Ford models with front-wheel drive wear differently than tires on Ford vehicles with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive.
  • Road Conditions: The roads you drive on around Fairview Heights also affect tire health. Road and weather conditions both have a significant impact, as does off-roading.
  • Incline: Tires experience more friction when starting and stopping on inclines as compared with flat surfaces.
  • Driving Habits: Heavy acceleration and hard braking wear out tires more quickly than if you gently and gradually accelerate and decelerate.

Tire Care Tips

Now that you are aware of the factors that influence tire health and how many miles they last, Granite City-area drivers can also take the following actions to extend tire life:

  • Check tire pressure regularly at gas stations, as they typically have tire inflation stations.
  • Test tire tread depth routinely to monitor tread wear.
  • Get a tire rotation every time you bring your car in for an oil change.
  • Keep up with your Ford maintenance schedule.
