In today's rough economic climate many vehicle owners are looking to save as much money as they can, and that
would include getting as long a tread life out of their tires as possible.
Advances in tire technology have led to several tire models getting much higher mileage than they did just 10-20
years ago. In fact, some tires may get more miles than the actual vehicle they are put on.
Naturally, there can be a tradeoff for higher mileage and longer tire warranties, and that may be performance.
With inherently harder tread compounds, softer sidewalls and higher UTQG ratings, they often reduce high
performance handling and cornering power. But let's face it, drivers looking for a 100,000 mile tire are not the
same drivers looking for new tread on their Chevy Corvette.
We've reviewed all of the various tire brands and models to come up with our list of the ten longest lasting
maximum mileage tires. All of the tires listed have tread warranties of 80,000 miles and up. They are not listed in
any particular order.
