Before you can purchase new tyres, you need to be aware of their safety and quality standards. Many consumers are unaware of the dangers of buying cheap, low-quality tyres. Why do you need to ensure the standards are high? Quality and safety standards ensure that tyres are safe and fit for use.
The materials that go into tires and the processes by which they are manufactured affect the speed at which they wear out as well as their durability and fuel consumption. This is why safety standards for new tires are so important for ensuring that consumers get value for money. For example, an unapproved tyre might be made by an unscrupulous manufacturer to have a treadwear grade of only 100 but, because the product hasn’t passed through safety tests, the manufacturer can claim that it has a grade of 300. This means that the tread on the tyre is three times less durable than the manufacturer claims.
How long should a new set of tires last? The answer depends on several things, including the type and brand of tire you buy, how much you drive and what kind of car you drive.
As for specific brands and models, there are benchmarks for how long popular models can be expected to last. For example, tyres with a tread depth of 4/32 or greater should last at least 40,000 miles on Pirelli P6 Four Seasons Plus tires, according to the manufacturer. (Consumer Reports rates
The speed rating of most passenger car tires is 80 mph or higher. The minimum tread depth for tires with a maximum speed of 80 mph or more is 2/32 inch, whereas, for tyres that are rated for speeds of 75 mph or less, the minimum tread depth is 3/32 inch. Most passenger car tires have tread depths between 4/32 and 6/32 inches when new.
