Service Center

When you plan a hike, you don't just grab your ratty tennis shoes, tie them on, and hit the trail. That's a one-way trip to blisters and sore feet. You'll go to the shoe shop, find a nice pair of hiking boots, spend a few days breaking them in, and then hit the trails.

The same is true for your car tires! Tires are an important part of your car, truck, or SUV, and will need to be replaced every so often-just like your holey sneakers. If you're wondering how long do tires last, let the team at Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram of Seminole County give you an answer with our quick guide.

Read on if you're in the Sanford, Deltona, Orlando, or Alamonte Springs, FL, area, then visit our service center to assess your tires.

How Long Do Tires Last?

Extend the Life of Your TiresOn average, your tires will last you between 60,000 and 75,000 miles or between four and five years. This is, of course, barring anything like punctures or collisions that might make a replacement necessary before then.

Maybe you're a little lax about writing down your mileage and when the last time you replaced your tires was-that's fine, none of us are perfect! There's an easy way to help figure out if you need a tire replacement called the penny test. All you'll need is a penny, and what you'll do is slip it between the tread with Lincoln's head upside down.

  • If Lincoln disappears into the groove, then your tires still have plenty of tread and you can continue driving.
  • If you can see Lincoln's face, then your tread is rather worn, and you should consider visiting our service center.

How to Extend the Life of Your Tires

Now that you know how long your tire should last, how can you help make sure your tires meet those milestones? There are a few ways you can help to extend the life of your tires, such as:

  • Avoid braking hard.
  • Drive less aggressively.
  • Keep your tire pressure within recommended levels.

Another way you can help keep your tires healthy is by regularly rotating them. You may be thinking: Why would I rotate my tires? They rotate on their own when I drive. And you'd be right, but rotation by a mechanic is a different procedure. The mechanic will rotate the tires to different positions on the vehicle, rather than the revolutions caused by driving.

If you have forward-wheel or rear-wheel drive, you'll want to rotate your tires roughly every 7,000 miles, while if you have an all-wheel or 4-wheel-drive model, you should rotate your tires every 5,000 miles. You'll likely get a rearward cross configuration, where the front tires are moved to the opposite rear positions and the rear tires are moved directly forward.

Visit Our Tire Department

Service CenterWhether you need a tire replacement, rotation, or you think you may have a puncture and need a patch, our tire center is there to help you out. You can buy either single tires, a new set, or change sets, depending on the season. If you're planning on a winter skiing trip, you may want to investigate winter tires, but Floridians can mostly stay with all-season tires.

You can also check out our helpful online tire guides. We go over things like:

  • Types of wear with visual aids.
  • What the sidewall markings mean.
  • Guides on different types of tires.
