How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

Tire Care from Mile High Acura


A good set of tires is one of the most important components of your vehicle. Not only do your tires play a huge role in your Acura’s performance when driving around the Aurora area, but your safety as well. So, how many miles do tires last – and how can you tell if something is wrong? While many experts estimate that the average lifespan of a set is around 50,000 miles, a lot depends on individual factors.

How Many Miles Should Tires Last?

Every tire advertises something a little bit different. Some tires claim to get 30,000 miles of wear, while others boast a lifespan of 80,000 miles or more! Generally speaking, the typical set will last around 50,000 miles.

Technicians recommend changing your tires about every 6 years, but it’s important to take your driving habits into consideration. The average Highlands Ranch-area driver hits around 15,000 miles annually. If you’re a high-mileage commuter, you’re adding a lot of extra wear and tear to your set – which means a quicker visit to the dealership for tires.

Beyond changing your tires every 6 years, you should also get your tires rotated regularly. Doing so will expand the longevity of the tires of your MDX or RDX.

Tire Care: The Basics from Mile High Acura

If you really want to keep your TLX’s tires in top shape, be sure to stay on top of your maintenance. Proper maintenance and service will ensure that you get the best performance out of your tires, and luckily, it’s not hard to do!

  • Tread: Check your tread with a tire gauge, tread-wear indicators, or a simple penny test. If they’re around 2/32 of an inch of tread, it’s time to shop for a replacement set.
  • Pressure: Check your tire pressure every month. If you don’t know the proper inflation settings, check your owner’s manual or car door jamb.
  • Balance: Schedule a balance and alignment around the time of your oil change. This helps you tires wear more evenly as you drive around Littleton.
