How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Flat Tire

How many miles do tires last? Most new Kia OEM tires and high-quality replacements will last approximately 50,000 miles. However, maintenance, driving conditions, and driving habits can result in different answers when you ask, how many miles do tires last” and “how many miles should tires last.” Luckily, the Ray Brandt Kia service team is here to guide you through all of your service needs. Learn more about how many miles should tires last below!

What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy? 

While the general answer to the question of how many miles should tires last is about 50,000 miles, there are many factors that can impact that number:

  • Type of tire: High-performance tires are great for models like the Stinger, but they wear out faster than all-season tires that have less rolling resistance. 
  • Treadwear rating: Your tires will come rated for treadwear, this will give an indication of their expected lifespan.
  • Drivetrain: Depending on where your engine power is sent, your tires may wear out in an uneven fashion.
  • Road conditions: If you routinely travel on gravel or dirt roads, encounter construction, or take your vehicle off-roading, you likely won’t get as much life out of your tires as an average driver. 
  • Terrain: Living in an area with steep inclines on the road will cause your tires to endure more friction over time. This can lead to a shorter lifespan as compared to drivers who travel on more level ground. 
  • Driving habits: Slamming on the brakes or harshly accelerating can add undue stress to your tires, thus reducing their lifespan.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

Along with adopting more cautionary habits behind the wheel, there are a few other things you can do to extend the life of your tires:

  • Inspect for proper air pressure when you fill your gas tank. This is a great chance to fill up since many gas stations have tire inflation stations.
  • Routinely inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
  • Rotate your tiresfor more even tire wear.
  • Keep your vehicle on track with regularly scheduled maintenance.
