How Many Miles Do Tires Last?

If you’ve been behind the wheel of your new or pre-owned Kia sedan or SUV for some time and experience some slight differences in your driving, then it may be time to replace your tires. As we drive every day, we put more and more strain on our tires. So, how many miles do tires last? Depending on the vehicle and the make, a Kia model with tires from the OEM will maintain great support and last about 50,000 miles. Learn more about how many miles tires last from the experts at Kia Cerritos. 

What Factors Affect Tires Life Expectancy? 

As we drive every day, we put more and more strain on our tires. And, while you can always refer to your owner’s manual or the tire manufacturer to see how often tires should be changed on your Kia, there are a number of factors that will affect how soon or how later you’ll need to have your tires changed. These include: 

  • Driving habits: To have tires that last a longer period of time, it’s best to not accelerate and brake your vehicle with a lead foot and instead gradually accelerate and brake. 
  • Treadwear rating: Every tire should come with a treadwear rating which rates the life expectancy of the tire’s treads.
  • Type of tire: If you have all-season tires, you can expect them to last longer than some high-performance tires due to them having less rolling resistance.
  • Road conditions: Depending on if you drive off-road a lot, or are stuck driving on gravel or dirt roads regularly rather than smooth, paved roads, your tires will see more wear-and-tear. Also, if you drive in snow, rain, or icy conditions, then this can negatively impact your tire’s wear, especially with salt in snowy conditions.
  • Drivetrain: Depending on if your vehicle has rear-wheel drive, front-wheel drive, or all-wheel drive, your tires will all wear differently due to where the main power is being sent to.
  • Terrain: For drivers who live in areas with more inclines and declines in the road, there is more friction on your tires to start and stop than on flat streets.

Tire Care Tips For Long-Lasting Tires

Even after you’ve found a great set of replacement wheels, here are some additional quick tire tips to help ensure your vehicle continues to run its best no matter where you are:

  • Take your vehicle in for regularly scheduled maintenance and have your tires professionally inspected.
  • Inspect for proper air pressure on a regular basis. You can do this at a gas station when you fill up your gas tank, or do it at home with an air pressure gauge. 
  • Rotate your tires on a consistent basis so your tires get even distribution of wear.
  • Regularly inspect tire tread depth for tire tread wear.
