How many miles does a car tire last?

I’m wondering if the tires I would like to purchase are going to last me for a good amount of time. How many miles does a car tire typically last?

Answer
Great question! Most quality car tires last 30,000 to 50,000 miles. As with most disposable vehicle parts, the use and environmental surroundings of the tires will affect their lifespan.
Tires with higher treadwear ratings will also last longer than those with lower ratings. This is also true of all-season tires as opposed to performance tires. Since performance tires are softer and have less rubber, they will wear out more quickly.
Your driving habits will also affect how long a tire will last. If you aren’t gunning it or slamming on the brakes, your tires should last longer.
To find the tire that will last you the longest, ensure it matches your driving habits and where you live. Most tires come with rating indicators to help you determine what’s best.
Should you ever have issues with your tires in the future, consider getting a roadside assistance membership with Jerry. Jerry’s roadside assistance includes jump starts, lockout service, key replacement, and towing for as low as $4.16 a month.
