Unfortunately there’s no set mileage that you should replace your tires. There are quite a few factors that go into how fast your tires wear. Climate, terrain, and driving habits all play a major role in when you’ll need to new tires.
Fortunately some manufacturers offer guidelines to help determine when to get a replacement set. Some recommend a certain mileage while others provide a “red zone” for tread levels that indicate you need new tires. The best way to determine if you need a fresh set of tires is to have your vehicle serviced at a certified dealerships.
Certified dealerships will check your tire's tread levels at every oil change. Many will even rotate the tires as well, effectively extending their lifespan.
Taking proper care of your tires is rather easy. Make sure your tire pressure is around the manufacturer-suggested level found in your owner’s manual or on the inside of the driver’s door. Doing so comes with a tirade of benefits including a longer lifespan and increased fuel economy.
Tire rotations are also important and, if you don’t service your vehicle at a dealership, is a service you should have done at every oil change.
Rotating your tires allows them to wear evenly which means you can get a new set later on rather than buying your tires in pairs. Tire rotations are necessary due to the fact that the front tires bear the weight of the engine and lead the car around corners. The rear tires, on the other hand, just follow the front tires and bear much less weight. As a result, the front tires wear much faster than the rear tires.
