How long do mud tires last?

I finally got a set of mudding tires for my truck this last winter so that when the snow started melting I could take it out for a spin. I have been tearing up some trails so I wonder how these tires hold up. How long do mud tires typically last?

Typically, mud tires can last about 40,000 miles—similar to regular pavement tires. However, your driving conditions can impact your tires’ lifespans. Here are some things to consider when it comes to your mud tires:
  • Driving surfaces. You’ll elongate their life if you’re taking your mud tires out on mud, snow, and dirt trails pretty exclusively. If, however, you’re also driving regularly on pavement the tires may wear down more quickly.
  • Driving habits. The harder you brake the more you subject your tires to wear and tear.
  • Inflation. Since mud tires are made to flex with rough terrain, you should keep them slightly more deflated than regular tires. If there is too much air in them, you run a higher risk of damaging them.
If, by unfortunate circumstances, your tires get damaged because of an accident, a good car insurance policy will cover the repairs. To make sure you have the best insurance for your situation, use Jerry!
