Tires are one of the most important part of your vehicle, directly affecting safety, performance and efficiency.

However, tires don’t last forever and knowing when to replace them is key to maintaining your car’s performance.

Their longevity varies depending on several factors such as driving habits, road conditions, vehicle type, and maintenance. On average tires can last anywhere from 20,000 to 40,000 miles, which translates to roughly three to four years of normal driving.

Factors Affecting Tire Longevity

  1. Driving Habit: Aggressive driving reduces tire life, such as hard braking, fast cornering, and rapid acceleration.
  2. Road Condition: Bad roads with potholes reduce your tire longevity, smooth well-maintained roads are kinder to tires.
  3. Tire Type: Different types of tires have different lifespan; high performance tires often wear out faster than all season tires.
  4. Maintenance: Proper maintenance is crucial, regularly checking tire pressure, rotating tires every 6,000 to 8,000miles, and ensuring proper alignment and balancing extends tire life.
  5.  Wheel alignment: Improper wheel alignment can also affect tire wear.

Signs It’s Time To Replace Your Tires

  1. Crack or Bulge: Crack in the sidewall or bulge indicates potential tire failure.
  2. Vibration: Excessive vibration while driving can indicate tire imbalance, misalignment, or internal tire damage.
  3. Tread Depth: The tread should never fall below 2/32 of an inch. Many tires have tread wear indicators that become visible when the tread is low.
  4. Uneven Wear: This can signify alignment or balance issues.


Regular tire checks and maintenance can help extend tire life. Keep in mind that individual result may vary, and it’s essential to consult your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations for specific guidance.
