How many miles does an average tyre take to wear?

How long does an average tyre take to wear down?

Obviously everyone is different and depends on there driving attitude.

How many miles roughly could a tyre last for?

I have had tyres last for more than 30,000 miles, it depends on things like tyre pressure, driving style, climate, condition of the roads you drive on

Difficult to really say, I've done 16k miles in 13 months & plenty of tread left. Everyone will be different due to driving styles, how many people in car, hard/soft braking, types of road being driven on etc etc

Mine (OEM Potenzas) lasted 26K (in 2 years) from new and are now being replaced. They were rotated every 6K to try and get even wear (hasn't fully worked though).

There is 1mm or so until I hit the legal limit but I'd rather have them all changed together, and get it done before I resume my daily commute and the weather (if possible) worsens. I'm hoping to notice the much improved grip when I get the new tyres fitted.

It depends on the car, the use of the car, which axle they are one and the characteristics of the tyre.

My Clio 197 went through a set of front conti sports in 16,000 miles and my 1.4 Type S needed new fronts at 19,000 miles. The rears so far have done 29,000 miles. My old company Astra Diesel went as far as 24,000 miles on a set of Dunlops.

There's NO such thing as an average tyre ...

Lifespan depends on :-
  • Make and model of car
  • Wheel diameter & tyre width
  • Make and type of tyre
  • Tyre speed and load rating
  • Car's wheel geometry setup
  • How \ where you drive
  • Etc. etc.
I've had a car where the front tyres had been replaced three times, and the rears still had plenty of tread, but then got replaced because of age (the rubber was actually perishing !) ...

My local tyre fitter said the lifespan of any tyre is maximum 5 years, then as Ridell said, the tyre will start to perish. My rear Potenza is hitting 5 years and is starting to split and crack around the shoulder and tyre wall.

Can't speak for the Civic yet but I am usually disappointed if I don't get around 20,000 from the front tyres (I don't rotate) and 40,000 plus on the rears on front wheel drive cars.

That's assuming, of course, that there hasn't been any uneven tyre wear. Annoyingly my Golf had uneven tyre wear that tracking didn't sort but when I traded it in, the front wheel that didn't wear unevenly had just under 5 mm of tread left after 14,000 miles.

If you drive vigorously, you are going to get less. My mate gets about 12,000 from the fronts on his Type R.
