What Types of Tires are Available?
How Long Do Tires Last?
The useful life of automotive tires depends on a handful of factors including; how often they get used, the type of driving that they see (i.e. aggressive or gentle), as well as the conditions that they’re used in. As a general rule of thumb, all-season tires last between three to five years, or about 90,000 to 135,000 kilometres worth of travel for the average driver. However, most vehicle experts suggest that drivers change their vehicle’s tires after a decade of purchase, regardless of use.
Winter tires typically last about three or four years on average, assuming drivers are only using them in the conditions they were intended for. Similarly, summer tires don’t typically last as long as their all-season counterparts and will likely need to be replaced after up to four years of occasional use.
Taking Care of Your Tires
Once your new tires are securely installed onto your vehicle, it’s important to practice proper tire care to ensure they last as long as possible. On a monthly basis, drivers should be sure to check their tire pressure to ensure they’re properly inflated. Similarly, drivers should take their vehicle in to get their tires rotated every six months to make sure that each tire gets an even amount of wear.
