How long do your TYRES usually last you? (in Miles)

As title really..

Just wondering if anyone has an idea of how long their tyres actually last before they need replacing, general driving, from new tyres to when they need replacing..

what is it, 3000, 5000, 10,000 miles or more..

any info would be greatly appreciated.

No, its not. People doing average mileage dont change their tyres EVERY year!
#13
google seems to think that its MUCH more than 30k

306 had dodgey arms and still used to get 12,000 miles out of them with the tracking out.
#18
in all honestly i can get about 30k miles on a decent pair of pirelli or michelin.

The one thing thats **** up tires are the stones, they take chunks out of them. i had to replace mine after 3 months!
#19
its looking like i should expect about 20k min, to 30k max..

:D

only time will tell of course, but feel free to keep letting us know your usages

Completely depends on 4 things.

Compound (Bridgestones,Yokies very soft don't expect any more than 20k driving like miss daisy. On avg. 10-15k
Michys, Conti and Pirellis are generally a hard compound so you can expect up to 40k driving like miss daisy. On Avg 20-30K

Vehicle Maintainance (Tyre Pressures/suspension/bushes etc.)

Road Condition (Quality of Roads)

and the biggie

Driving Style... if you drive it like you stole it expect less than 5k for the soft compounds and less than 15k for the harder compounds.

Also depends a lot on original quality - like 10k for cheapest Chinese tyres to 30k or more for Michelins.

They were some sports tires though, low pros, and i think they were "W" rating if that makes any sense :S

Compound - Dont know, mine are pirellies but the exact formulation is unknown

Vehicle maintenance - i typically check tyre pressure every month, or on long journies

Road condition - Generally the roads are flat and smooth, there are pot holes which i try to avoid and have a 82% success rate. The rocks on building sites screw my tyres up big style

Driving style - i drive an a hole.... pure and simple

And there was me thinking a sporty car having stickier tyres which wouldn't last as long as others
Any constant 4x4 car IE Subaru would be harder on tyres as well
And a heavy car would be harder on tyres to


lol A 4X4 car means they will generally wear evenly

A rear wheel driver guess what.... the rears will wear first

A front wheel drive...you get the point.

Unless you do front to rear or rear to front you should only be needing to change the drive wheel tyres, so not all 4 at the same time.

Lets face it in a front wheel drive car all the back wheels do is follow you.

^^ I believe the advice given now is to have the best tyres on the rear of your car.

Michelin pretty good,some can last no time though

Apparently its better to have a blow out on the front as you can still steer, blow out on the rear means back end might overtake you. Thats the thinking.

No reason you can't do a front to rear if you are sensible though to get even wear, wouldnt advise swapping them over if you only had 2mm left on your fronts and put them on the back.

4x4 means they all wear faster as they aren't 100% in sync and working against each other


If what you are saying is the power isn't split 50/50 then you are correct but they will wear more evenly than a FWD or a RWD.

4x4 I believe range 60/40 70/30 front to rear ratio

Always had Dunlop runflats on my car and they last about 10K miles, tyre fitter told me this is typical.

You accept that with fwd or rwd the tyres that get power delivered wear the quickest
So with all 4 wheels being driven they all wear quicker with the rears usually wearing faster because they get more power delivered


Seriously you are boring me now.

Yes a FWD and RWD will wear faster as they are 100% power driven at all times.

A 4x4 will wear all 4 at the same time to a degree more than a 2wd vehicle however all power is not concentrated to 1 axle so less wear will be given to the axle with a lesser drive ratio.

If you want to get seriously technical then the rate of wear will probably be less than a 2wd vehicle as the torque is more evenly spread across the 2 axles meaning less wear force is exacted on 2 particular tyres.

The best tyres in my opinion are Continental EcoContact and Uniroyals, superb in the rain and I get over 20K out of them, but it also depends on the car, some cars are heavier on tyres than others.

Conti Contact 2 are a great tyre as are the Michelin Primacy but they obviously cost accordingly.
