How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Hand Wiping Down Car Tire


No matter how durable they are, your tires take a lot of wear and tear on New London streets. That’s why you can expect to get around 50,000 miles out of your tires before you need to replace them. Learn more about how many miles tires should last with Westbrook Honda, and schedule service with us when it’s time for tire maintenance or replacement. 

What Factors Affect Tire Life Expectancy? 

How many miles tires last can depend on a number of factors, whether you’re driving in Branford or taking long road trips. They include: 

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires with extra grip tend to wear out faster than all-season tires, which have less rolling resistance. 
  • Treadwear rating: All tires come with a treadwear rating, which rates how long the tread will last. 
  • Drivetrain: Your tires will wear differently depending on if you have front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, especially if you don’t stay on top of your tire rotations
  • Road conditions: Driving on rough roads, like gravel or dirt, or through construction, rain, or ice will wear out your tires faster. If you go off-roading, your tires will wear out faster, too. 
  • Terrain: Regularly driving on hilly roads increases the amount of friction on your tires when you stop and start. 
  • Driving habits: Using a lead foot on the gas and brake will make your tires wear faster than if you ease into stops and starts. 

Ways to Help Your Tires Last for More Miles

Along with keeping good driving habits in Middletown, these factors can help increase how many miles your tires last: 

  • Check your tire air pressure regularly: Your owner’s manual will tell you the right tire pressure for your Honda. To make it easy, purchase a small, inexpensive tire gauge.
  • Inspect tire treadregularly: Look for wear and a decrease in tread.
  • Rotate your tires: Check your owner’s manual for frequency recommendations. 
  • Stick to the recommended maintenance schedule.
