How do I know which tires are best for my EV?
The “best” tires for your electric vehicle are often the ones that originally came with it, also known as the OE (Original Equipment) tire. These tires were chosen or designed for your specific make and model to deliver the exact performance characteristics the vehicle manufacturer intended.
If you decide to go with a different tire, make sure to choose one that’s rated for use on your EV, and made for your driving style and climate.
What makes EV tires different than regular tires?
Electric vehicles have different performance needs than their gas-powered counterparts. When shopping EV tires, look for tires that deliver:
Low rolling resistance: The less friction your tires create with the road, the less energy your vehicle needs to move. Tires with low rolling resistance help maximize the distance you get in between battery charges.
Reduced road noise: Without the roar or hum of a gas engine, road noise is more apparent when driving an EV. That’s why noise-reducing, smooth-riding tires are a must.
High load rating: Your EV contains heavy rechargeable battery packs, and the extra weight puts additional strain on tires. You need a tire that can handle this increased load.
Maximum traction: You might enjoy the near-instantaneous acceleration of your EV, but all that extra torque is hard on tires. Make sure to look for a tire with excellent grip.
Do EV tires wear faster?
Since EV tires must carry the additional weight of heavy rechargeable batteries and contend with the extra torque from EVs’ quick acceleration, they do tend to wear faster than regular tires.
A new set of EV tires will generally last about 30,000–40,000 miles before needing replacement. High-performance tires with low profiles and higher speed ratings may need to be replaced even sooner. The actual mileage you get out of your tires will vary based on your vehicle and your typical driving conditions.
