How About Used Tires?

Normally, used tires last 2-5 years if bought in adequate condition. A 2-year-old tire with no damage, patches, uneven wear, and with about 8/32” tread left, may last for good 5 years. A 4-year-old tire with 5/32” tread left, and without any significant plugs or cuts, may last a further 2 years. The lifespan of a used tire is extremely unpredictable, so any calculations are only estimates. The tire’s condition greatly depends on a number of factors.

* Age: Any tire of 5 years or older has to be fully diagnosed every year and changed once deep cracks appear on its sidewalls or tread.

* Treadwear: Used tires may have up to 10/32” tread available, which is more than 90% of a new tire. Used tires last to 2/32”.

* Damage and Repairs: The most frequent damage need attention are cuts, holes, and cracks.

* Maintenance: Both prior and future maintenance are crucial to how long used tires last. However, the necessary processes are the same:

  • Tire balance
  • Tire rotation
  • Wheel alignment.

How to Make Used Tires Last Longer

There are some things you can do to prolong the life of your used tires. These are:

  • Check air pressure regularly.
    Some people recommend to check tire pressure every 3,000 miles, others insist on doing it weekly. It depends on the roads you drive on and the symptoms your tires have. For example, if you notice a tire loses air slowly yet faster than the others, check the pressure more often.
    Proper inflation will improve your fuel efficiency by up to 3%. Nowadays, checking the inflation rate isn’t difficult, due to the Tire Pressure Monitoring System. It’s required on all vehicles manufactured after 2007.

  • Rotate your tires.
    To make your used tires last longer, make sure you rotate them every 5,000-8,000 miles. Also, look at the tires thoroughly while rotating, as there may be minor damage that could become a serious issue. Remember to choose the right rotation pattern for the tires, depending on whether they are directional and same-sized.
  • Balance your tires.
    Balance the tires every 3,000-6,000 miles, depending on how fast the tread wears. With time, weight distribution around the tire changes, requiring a new balance. It’s important to provide balance, to avoid vehicle vibration and other connected issues.
  • Don’t expose your tires to UV and ozone excessively.
    Some exposure is inevitable, but make sure you control the climate in your garage, to make the used tires last longer. Storing tires in a cool dark place, in special tire totes, will help prolong their life. When not at home, make sure you park the car in shade.
  • Wash your tires.
    Follow special techniques and rules of tire cleaning to achieve the best results. The easiest way to clean your tires is to change the water every time you wash or rinse one tire. Another rule is to dry clean them first and then apply water. Keep in mind, some cleaning substances promote tire drying, so make sure you choose the appropriate cleaners.

Best Tire Brands

Which Brands Make the Best Tires?

When it comes to tire recommendations, there are several brands that regularly rise to the top. To determine how the leaders truly compare, we calculated a brand score by averaging the overall scores of the tested models for each brand (the scale ranges from 0 to 100).

This data come from our extensive tire test program, which provides detailed ratings on 176 tire models from more than 25 brands.

The tires factored into these scores come from all rated categories, including all-season and performance all-season car tires, ultra-high-performance (UHP) all-season and UHP summer tires, all-season and all-terrain truck tires, winter/snow car and truck tires, and performance winter/snow tires.

We excluded tire brands if we tested fewer than four of their tires. The final scores here reveal just how competitive the market is, with little difference among the leaders. It’s important for tire shoppers to understand how the tires rank in a given category and to consider how a tire model performs. (Learn how to choose the right tires for your car.)

Consumer Reports tests more than 50 tire models every year—for cars, SUVs, and trucks—putting them through their paces in up to 14 tests. Most tests are conducted by an expert team at our 327-acre Auto Test Center in Connecticut.

We test braking on ice at a local rink, and an outside lab assesses tire rolling resistance, which affects fuel economy. We evaluate tread life by driving thousands of miles on a road course in western Texas and use that information, along with the price we paid for the tire, to estimate the cost per 100 miles.

Our tests measure performance in braking, comfort, handling, hydroplaning, noise, snow traction, and other important areas. Plus, we can predict the tread life in miles based on our extensive treadwear test program. This combined information can help you find the best tires for your car from brands including BFGoodrichBridgestoneContinentalCooperDunlopFalkenFirestoneGeneralGoodyearGT  RadialHankookKumhoMichelinNexenNittoNokianPirelliSumitomoToyoUniroyal, and Yokohama.

Find the Best Tires for Your Car

Find the Best Tires for Your

When the rubber meets the road, tread life is one of the most important things to consider while shopping for tires.

All-Season Tires

All-season tires come in sizes to fit everything from small cars to light-duty SUVs and pickups (and they come standard on many sedans and minivans). They are the most popular type of tire and are designed to handle most conditions, including dry and wet pavement and light to moderate snow.

Performance All-Season Tires

Performance all-season tires provide year-round grip tuned for enthusiastic driving. They are a step up from regular all-season tires, and they place more emphasis on handling, though the trade-off tends to be shorter tread life.

Ultra-High-Performance All-Season Tires

All-season ultra-high-performance tires are commonly fitted to upscale sedans or sporty vehicles. These tires deliver high levels of dry and wet grip and handling but give up some light-duty winter traction.

Ultra-High-Performance Summer Tires

Summer UHP tires are not intended for cold weather and won’t grip in snowy or icy conditions. And like all-season ultra-high-performance tires these tires deliver the ultimate dry and wet grip and handling.

All-Season Truck Tires

These tires are commonly used on SUVs and light-duty pickups. They are designed to handle most conditions, including dry and wet pavement and light to moderate snow.

All-Terrain Truck Tires

All-terrain models differ from all-season tires in that they have a more aggressive tread pattern intended for use on-road and in moderate off-road conditions.

Winter/Snow Tires

Winter tires have a tread with more biting edges for better grip on snow and ice than all season tires, and many have a softer rubber compound that remains flexible in extremely cold temperatures.

Performance Winter/Snow Tires

Performance winter tires have higher levels of snow and ice grip and keep some of the handling and cornering capabilities of the performance tires they replace, but they’re not always as good as all-season tires on dry and wet pavement and tend to wear out faster.

Winter/Snow Truck Tires

Truck winter/snow tires are specifically designed for pickups and SUVs. Like car winter/snow tires, always use truck winter/snow tires in a set of four for optimum grip to go, stop, and corner.  But on cleared roads they might not grip as well as all-season tires, and they tend to wear more quickly.

Tires Buying Guide

Despite advances in longer-lasting tires, actual tread life will vary by car type, tire type, driving aggressiveness, and even road and weather conditions. You still need to replace your tires a few times or more throughout the life of a typical vehicle.

Tire Tips

Tire Tips


How To Inspect a Tire

Once every month, or before you embark upon long road trips, check your tires for wear and damage problems. One easy way to check for wear is by using the penny test. All you have to do is grab an Abraham Lincoln penny and follow 3 easy steps:


  • Take a penny and hold Abe’s body between your thumb and forefinger.
  • Select a point on your tire where tread appears the lowest and place Lincoln’s head into one of the grooves.
  • If any part of Abe Lincoln’s head is covered by the tread, you’re driving with the legal and safe amount of tread. If your tread gets below that (approximately 2/32 of an inch), your car’s ability to grip the road in adverse conditions is greatly reduced.

How to Check Tire Pressure

Tires have been known to lose up to 1psi (pounds per square inch) every month, so check all tires, including your spare, once a month (or before a long trip). It’s easy. Here’s how:


Purchase a trusted tire pressure gauge.

Check your tires “cold” – before you’ve driven or at least three hours after you’ve driven.

  • Insert tire pressure gauge into the valve stem on your tire. The gauge should begin reading the air pressure immediately. Refer to your air pressure gauge owners manual for correct usage instructions. If using a “pencil” style tire gauge, the gauge will “pop” out and show a measured number. When you hear a “pssst” sound, that’s air escaping the tire. The escaping air shouldn’t affect pressure substantially, unless you hold down the air pressure gauge too long.
  • Compare the measured psi to the psi found on the sticker inside the driver’s door of your vehicle or in owner’s manual. DO NOT compare to the psi on your tire’s sidewall.
  • If your psi is above the number, let air out until it matches. If below, add air. Low pressure can lead to tire damage.

Mixing in new tires with worn tires

When replacing two new tires instead of four, be sure that your new tires are the same size and tire type as your current tires, and that your dealer always installs the new tires on the rear axle of your vehicle. For continued optimized vehicle performance, it is recommended that all tires be replaced at the same time with identical MSPN.


Deeper tread tires on the rear axle provide better handling, wet grip, and evacuate water, thereby helping to avoid over steer and loss of vehicle stability on wet surfaces. Deeper tread tires on the front axle can improve wet straight line braking and stopping distance. If only two tires are being replaced, generally recommends they be installed on the rear axle in the absence of a tire service professional’s recommendation or consumer’s preference to the contrary.

Replacing a single tire on a vehicle can have an adverse effect on suspension systems, gear ratios, transmissions, and tire tread wear. If a single tire replacement is unavoidable, it is recommended that the single new tire be paired with the deepest tread tire from the vehicle (including the full size spare) and both be placed as a pair.

Tire Rotation

Fact: Regular rotation helps extend the life of your tires and improve performance. So if you like safety and saving money regular rotation is important for vehicles with dual rear wheels as well.


During rotation, each tire and wheel is removed from your vehicle and moved to a different position to ensure that all tires wear evenly and last longer. Tires should be rotated every six months or 6,000 to 8,000 miles.

Car Repair

Car Repair

If you drive, there’s probably little you hate more than getting your car repaired. It’s usually an expensive, time-consuming hassle no one looks forward to. Even so, it doesn’t have to be so bad. Here are some solid ways to save as much money as possible on your car repairs, and hopefully make the whole process a little easier, too. car repairs can be a hassle some of us avoid more than going to the dentist. Still, you’ll have to go eventually, regardless of your skill level. Let’s look at some ways you can make the whole affair as easy as possible.

Find the Best Garages and Mechanics Near You, and Stick with Them


The most obvious tip comes first: If you find a mechanic or a car repair shop that you trust and treats you like an intelligent human being who also happens to be their valued customer, you stick with that shop like glue. Find someone who deserves your business and reward them handsomely for staying in business. The good guys need all the help they can get.


  • Call or visit before you get work done. This is something too few people actually do. Swing by the lot before you actually have repair work that needs to be done. You should see cars in good condition—not parted out junk that looks like it’s been sitting around for ages. Turnover should be pretty high too, people should be coming and going. The shop should be at least relatively welcoming, and even if you can’t see into the work area, the place should be relatively clean. Talk to the staff—ask them how long they’ve been in business, whether they specialize in specific repairs or types of cars. Ask them what their labor guarantees are like, what parts they use, and how long they warranty those parts. Turn up your BS sensor, and evaluate how you’re treated.
  • Don’t underestimate the value of word-of-mouth. Check with your neighbors and see where they go, and if they’d recommend their mechanic or garage. If you have a community bulletin board, apartment building website, or even a local Facebook group, ask your neighbors. They’ll likely be able to give you some solid options, and there’s nothing like hearing first-hand experience to help you pick a good mechanic.

At the end of the day, the more research you do in advance to find a great place, the more you learn about how car repairs work and how much they cost, and the more you can do yourself without ever going to the mechanic, the more comfortable you’ll be about the whole car repair process. Plus, if you do your homework, you’ll save hundreds over the life of your car, just by being a smart, engaged car owner—preferably one that’s not afraid to get his or her hands dirty.

You’ve bought brand new, sturdy schoolbags and stocked up on enough copies, books and lunchboxes to do you a lifetime. But have your prepared your car for the school runs?
It might not be the first thing that springs to mind when the dreaded ‘Back to School’ prep is underway, but getting your car ready for the school runs is equally as important to ensure a safe, stress-free transition back into the school year. Before you set off on the first school run of the year, there are a few things you need to bear in mind:
Carpooling – Did you know your car insurance may be affected by carpooling?
Child Locks – It is important to make sure that the child locks in your car are activated before making any journey with children in your car.
Car seats – It is compulsory for all children to travel with the correct child seat, booster seat or booster cushion.

10 ways to get your car ready :
1. WASH your car
2. CHANGE your wiper blades
3. CHECK your wiper fluid level
4. CHECK your oil
5. CLEAN your floor mats
6. CHECK your tire pressure — and don’t forget the spare! And check the condition of your tires and brakes
7. SWAP out emergency gear
8. REPAIR scratches
