What Is the Average Life Expectancy of Tires?

Original equipment tires are expected to last at least 50,000 miles, according to Cars.com. However, the tire life depends on many factors, so it is difficult to determine how long a particular tire lasts.

Among the determining factors are the quality of the tire, the treadwear rating, the type of vehicle and how it’s driven. Driving for extended periods reduces the lifespan of the tires. Tires that are not frequently rotated, especially the ones mounted in front on a front-wheel drive vehicle, usually wear quickly. Performance tires tend to wear out faster than tires with less rolling resistance. Visiting Cars.com advice section can help drivers choose the type of tires that suit their driving style.
