How to Make Your Tires Last Longer

As a Billings driver, you understand the importance of properly maintaining your vehicle so it runs safely and optimally. In addition to regular oil changes and car washes, you may be wondering how to make your tires last longer as part of your car-care routine. Since tires wear over time, this is an important question to consider. In the following guide, discover how to make your tires last longer by learning what to look for and how to care for them.

How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

There is no official number when it comes to how many miles your tires may last because it is dependent on the balance of multiple important factors. These factors include the type of tire, the type of vehicle, your drivetrain, personal driving style, terrain, weather, and so much more. If we had to give a number, we’d say tires can last upwards of 15,000 miles when maintained properly. The following tips can help you prolong the life of your tires throughout Cody:

  • Check your tire pressure frequently. A lap around the car to look for signs of pressure loss is always smart. Should you need to get air, many fuel pump and rest stop air stations can do a digital read of your tires’ PSI. Your vehicle’s owner’s manual can inform you of the recommended PSI for your tires.
  • Also consider how the weather may affect your tires: warm air can cause inflation and cold, wintery air can cause deflation. Pay closer attention when the greater Laurel area experiences more extreme temperatures.
  • Promote even wear on your tires by getting a rotation every 5,000 miles. A rotation will prolong their lifespan by distributing the rate of wear evenly between all four. This is especially important for rear-wheel drive and front-wheel drive vehicles.
  • Have your car aligned and balance checked twice a year. Misaligned suspension or out-of-balance tires can be caused by hitting a curb, pothole, or other obstruction and can cause uneven wear or more expensive, dangerous issues down the road.
