Thread: How long should MTB tire tread last?

    How long should MTB tire tread last?

    I just bought this 2018 bike new in November, had 3 miles on it. The tires are Schwalbe Magic Mary, 27.5 and 2.8 wide. I noticed last night on our ride at Mueller Park that the tread is starting to fall off of one side.

    Although I just bought it 6 months ago, I have logged 300 miles, so maybe this is expected? But yikes, a couple hundred dollars per year on tires does not sound fun.

    Schwalbe's are notorious for wearing out fast. Soft rubber compound. I've owned a couple pairs but, will never buy them again. They just don't last.
    Are we there yet?

    That's good to know. I've liked Kenda and Maxxis tires, I'll have to start looking for some replacements.

    On my Salsa I was running Continental XC Kings and I would get 2500 miles out of them. At that mileage the rear was pretty much gone but the front wasn't to bad. I always replaced my tires in pairs and saved my 3/4 used front as a spare.

    My new Fezzari has Maxxis and I don't think they'll last 2500 miles.

    That's what happens when you throttle..i mean peddle.. hard around the corners.

    I try to keep it under 40MPH on the crowded trails
