What are the basics?

There is no way to tell exactly how long a tire lasts. The lifespan and mileage of a tire depends of a combination of factors: its design, the driver’s habits, the climate, the road conditions and the care that’s put into the tires.

Keep five years in mind for your tires

After five years or more in use, your tires should be thoroughly inspected at least once per year by a professional. The “penny test” can be used to gauge the tire tread wear.

Ten years is a maximum for tires

If the tires haven’t been replaced 10 years after their date of manufacture, as a precaution, it is highly recommended that you replace them with new tires. Even if they appear to be in usable condition and have not worn down to the tread wear indicator. This applies to spare tires as well.

Proper tire care expands a tire’s lifespan

You can increase your tire’s longevity by maintaining the correct air pressure, performing regular tire rotations and vehicle maintenance.

For original equipment: follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement recommendations.

How to check the manufacturing date on your tires

Look for the DOT number on your sidewall.
