How Long Will Your New Tires Last?

By Anthony K

Everyone dreams of owning a car. If you are fortunate enough, you may be a car owner already. Tires are very critical elements to a vehicle. Sadly, most people are unaware of how long their car tires remain safe to use. While the answer depends on several variables, you should consider changing car tires if you notice the tread dying out. This is true for all car models!

On average, you should start witnessing tire complications after driving for about four years. If you are an average driver, you must consider replacing your car tires after six years. In conclusion, the more you drive, the higher the chances of wear and tear.

On the other hand, reckless driving only aggravates the tire damage rate. For irresponsible drivers, the half-life is three years. You must practice proper tire maintenance to ensure your tires last as long as possible.

Proper tire habits include rotation, monitoring pressure levels, and responsible driving. In addition to safeguarding your tires, these simple practices will increase your safety while on the road. If you are a gentle driver, you will be happy to know your tires will likely serve you longer without damage.

Another essential care guide is ensuring you check for frame damage regularly. Frame damage tends to exert uneven pressure on two tires. If your car has frame damage, you will experience shorter tire life and plenty of risks. Luxury cars also have a shorter tire lifespan than their counterparts. This is yet another way luxury cars are more expensive — you need to pay for new tires more often.
