Factors That Affect the Longevity of Tires

 Factors That Affect the Longevity of Tires

When you bought new tires, you may have chosen them based on the number of miles they are rated to last for, getting the highest number possible so you don’t have to buy them again anytime soon. While that is a good plan overall, you should also know that there are other factors that affect the longevity of tires that can drastically reduce the actual mileage that you may experience.

  • Vehicle Loads – If you routinely transport heavy items in your vehicle, the tires have to do more work and thus will not last as long. This is particularly true if you put all the weight in just one area, which will wear the tires more unevenly.
  • Inflation – Over or under-inflating your vehicle’s tires can have an adverse effect on how long they will last for you. If you notice that the tread is wearing more in the middle of the tire or along the edges, inflation mistakes are likely to blame. It can also be hazardous to not have the inflation right, as you could hydroplane due to less tread contact with the road. You should test your tires regularly, particularly during extreme temperature changes.
  • Rotation and Alignment – The best way to get the longest life out of tires is to perform tire rotations regularly and be sure your vehicle is properly aligned. Misalignment results in excessive wear on one part of the tires.
  • Environment – The environment your vehicle is in dictates longevity of tires, as well. For example, tires that spend a lot of time in heat and humidity can develop dry rot and other problems even if they are rarely driven. Other factors such as driving off-road and by construction sites can also result in tire damage.

At Country Town Tire and Auto Service Center, we have a wide variety of tires available, so the best option for your vehicle is easy to determine. We also take care of the maintenance issues involved, so you can enjoy the longest life from your tires as possible. Call us today with any questions you may have about tires.
