All tires are not equal when it comes to wear resistance.
Although a good tire lasts around 50,000 km, this average can vary enormously.
This difference is not only down to the design and quality of the tire, but also the conditions of use, including driving habits, weather conditions and the type of road surface.
Rubber compound affects tire wear. Reinforcing fillers, such as carbon black and silica, are incorporated into the compound to improve the wear resistance.
The tread design also plays an important role, as larger and more rigid tread blocks are less subject to distortion.
Last but not least, correct tire pressure is the major factor determining the lifespan of a tire. All tires are designed for use at a specific pressure and both under-inflation and over-inflation are definite causes of premature wear.
