Chances are good that you don’t know as much about tire maintenance as you should. This guide will help you better understand how to take care of your Mazda tires so they give you years of great performance. 

How Long Do Tires Last? 

There’s no cut-and-dried answer to this question. If you take good care of your tires, a new set may last you 50,000 to 60,000 miles. If you neglect regular service, they will likely need to be replaced earlier.  

How Can I Get the Most Life Out of My Tires? 

The easiest thing you can do to help ensure your tires have a long lifespan is to rotate them about every six months. This lets them wear down a lot more evenly. You should check the air pressure periodically to see if it as the right level. Keeping up with tire balances and wheel alignments is also important.

What Is the Right Air Pressure for My Tires? 

You can find the answer to this question in two places. The driver’s side door jamb usually has the psi (pounds per square inch) listed there. You should also be able to find this in your owner’s manual.  

How Do I Know If I Need New Tires? 

The penny test can tell you if the treads on your tires are too low. Take a penny, point Abe’s head down, and stick it into a tread. If you can see the top of his head, the tread is too shallow. Do this on different spots of all four tires. 

What Type of Tires Should I Be Using? 

There are more types of tires than you may realize. All-season tires are generally the most widely used, but there are also summer, touring, winter, and performance tires. Your owner’s manual can give you some insight on what you should be using.
