How Long Do Tires Last: Key Factors

The answer to the question “how long do tires last?” may vary, depending on a number of different factors:

  • Tire type: While high-performance tires offer extra grip, they’re subject to wear out faster than all-season tires because they typically experience greater rolling resistance.
  • Treadwear rating: Tires come with a treadwear rating that rates the life expectancy of the tire treads.
  • Drivetrain: Whether you have FWD, RWD, AWD, or 4WD can also affect how quickly your tires wear, depending on where the vehicle sources power for forward motion from.
  • Road conditions: The snow, salt, and ice that hit Watrous in the winter can certainly do a number on our tires. Additionally, if you frequently go off-roading or drive on construction sites on a daily basis, both can make a big impact on the answer to “how many km do tires last?”
  • Terrain: If you live in a particularly hilly area, your tires can experience more friction than they would if you were starting and stopping on flat surfaces.
  • Driving habits: If anyone has ever accused you of having a lead foot, you may want to change up your habits. Accelerating gradually and coasting to stop will help your tires last longer.

Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

In addition to driving more cautiously, there are additional things Moose Jaw drivers can do to help their tires last longer:

  • Rotate your tires on a regular basis to ensure even distribution of wear.
  • Inspect tire tread depth regularly to check your tire tread wear.
  • Be diligent about regularly scheduled maintenance.
  • When you’re fueling up at Saskatoon gas stations, take advantage of the tire inflation station to inspect your tire air pressure.
