When Should You Replace Your Vehicle’s Tires?

As a general rule, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recommends that drivers change the tires on their vehicles every six years. However, there are several factors that can place additional wear and tear on tires that force drivers to change them more frequently. If you drive more aggressively by braking and accelerating harshly, your tires will wear much faster than if you were to drive more responsibly. Additionally, if you are frequently driving on poorly maintained roads, your tires could endure more wear and tear as well. Let’s explore a few ways to help your tires last for those six years!

How Can You Get Your Vehicle’s Tires to Last Longer?

Tire maintenance is key to having tires last the entire six years that they are meant to last. Checking the tire pressure of your tires on a monthly basis and ensuring the tires are filled to their recommended PSI is a simple way to maintain the life of your tires. Luckily, most modern vehicles feature a Tire Pressure Monitoring System that will notify you when the tire pressure is low in one or more of your tires. Also, having your tires rotated every 12 months or 10,000 miles—with every other oil change—is another great way to help your tires last as long as possible.
