On average, you can expect about 60,000 miles on your new tires. As tyres are the only part of your car that touches the ground, it is recommended that you replace them regularly to ensure the safety of your vehicle. However, the life of a tyre can be affected by a number of factors – the type of vehicle, the user’s driving habits and continuous driving time. So you can extend the life of your tires by following a few simple tips.

Keep The Pressure up

Maintaining the correct inflation pressure is important for maximizing tire life and maintaining safety. Check at least once a month — when tires are cold, and before long trips. Underinflation can affect handling and generate too much heat in the tire, leading to failure. You can find the correct pressure on the sticker inside the car, usually on the driver’s door frame.

Tire pressure changes:

  • Change it every month. Tires lose about a pound per square inch (PSI) of pressure per month.
  • In winter, when the temperature is lower, the air pressure decreases.
  • In the summer, when warm weather increases tire pressure.

Get Your Tires Rotated Every 5,000 Miles

In most cars, only one or two wheels “drive” the car at a time. This can lead to uneven tire wear. For example, in front-wheel drive vehicles, front tires wear out faster. In rear-wheel drive vehicles, rear tires. Even all-wheel drive vehicles can see uneven wear as most of the driving force shifts from one wheel to the other. Technicians rotate your tires by moving them to different wheel positions on the vehicle. This allows the tyres on the driving wheels to rest and allow for even wear. Rotation makes tires last longer. Do it every 5,000 miles.

Don’t Go Dald

Tread depth is measured from the top of the tread to the deepest groove. Tread wear strip at bottom of groove is flush with tread for remaining 2/32 inch. Tires are legally worn in most places. But we recommend buying before that happens, when you have 4⁄32 inches left. A quarter placed upside down in the tread groove can be used as a ruler. If you can see the top of Washington’s head above the tread, it’s time to buy tires.

Have Wheels Balanced

Tire rotation is also a good time to balance your wheels. Every tire and wheel has a heavy place. None of them are perfect, even when brand new. The difference is small, measured in terms of a quarter to a half an ounce. But this small difference can cause uneven vibration and tire wear. Your mechanic can balance each wheel with a special machine and small weights. As the tire wears, he may need to move or change that weight. This is a quick, simple process that costs much less than a new tyre to make sure you check and adjust the balance of your tyres during rotation.

Check Your Alignment Twice a Year

A misalignment can make your tires cocky or puffy. If your car actively pulls or drifts to the right or left, or the steering wheel vibrates or shakes, your car may have an alignment problem. But your car or truck could be driving well and still be wrong. When you hit an obstacle in a parking lot, hit a pothole, or hit the curb, something has to give, and that’s often your alignment. The smallest misalignment also reduces fuel efficiency and increases tire wear. Your mechanic can adjust your car’s positioning. Take your car to a check-up every six months. Or when you think there’s a problem. A little maintenance can help save a lot of money. You can extend the life of your tires by following these simple, inexpensive tire care tips.

Avoid Rough Terrains

Last but not least, you can improve the life expectancy of your tires by driving carefully and parking. Avoid rough terrain, as even a simple pothole can do a lot of damage to your tires. Also, park carefully to prevent tires from scraping the side of the road.
