Factors That Affect Tire Lifespan 

The reason “how many miles should tires last?” and “how many miles do tires last?” can have different answers is that many McAllen drivers drive in conditions that shorten the lifespan of their tires. These factors can all affect how long your tires last:

  • Type of tire: A high-performance tire will have more grip but will wear faster than an all-season tire.
  • Treadwear rating: Different tires have different treadwear ratings. The rating can let you know how long your tires might last. 
  • Drivetrain: Your drivetrain will wear your tires differently depending on where it sends power. For example, the front wheels on a front-wheel-drive vehicle wear more quickly. 
  • Road conditions: Regularly driving off-road, driving on gravel or dirt roads, or driving where there is construction, snow, salt, rain, and ice will all wear your tires down.
  • Terrain: Inclines create more friction for tires than flat surfaces. 
  • Driving habits: If you accelerate gradually and coast to stop rather than starting or stopping suddenly, your tires wear less. 

Tips for Longer-Lasting Tires

By following these tips, you can ensure that your tires last longer as you drive around South Padre Island: 

  • Check your air pressure when you fill up your gas tank. Proper tire pressure makes a big difference. 
  • Checking your tire tread depth regularly keeps you aware of your tire wear. 
  • Regularly rotate your tires. This will evenly distribute wear.
  • Always go in for regularly scheduled maintenance. If you don’t remember when you last had your tires checked, schedule service today.
