Faster tire wear in the summer

Hey does anyone have a guess at how much faster an AT or MT tire will wear in the hot summer months?

I want to run my good tire/wheel combo, but not if it will have too significant of an impact on overall wear.
Im too poor to buy tires every year
But the alternative is worn, unbalanced 33's that look totally goofy.

What are your thoughts?

PIS 175/80's, Van Turbo with EBPV, BD Billet Wheel
Lots of money spent at RiffRaff
Holley fuel pump, in tank mods, crappy riding leveling kit, DP-F6, 5 Gauges+Edge CS in dash, CB radio in Dash, over 100 goofy little mods
Still pretty slow, just less slow now.

I think that if you really live in Abbotsford, then you don't have anything close to summer and should have no worries.

don't let the sig pic fool you. We have lots of days over 90 degrees
Heck, just last week we topped 87 degrees and our record in Abby is 100.4 degrees.

Not all of Canada is arctic.

Nice truck btw, how much faster do your tires wear in the summer? Or does is it not affected much in your opinion?

Sorry, to me wear is wear, so many other things to be concerned about than that. Not to mention there's more to wear than just road temp... construction material, turns, how hard you brake... Way too many variables...


Good luck in your quest for a good answer...!

roate tires every oil change hands down has been best/ most consistant advice from tire guys... don't bother crossing thewm either unless you had major alignment issues before hand...

swap pass front'rear and drivers rear straightback every oil change. check tire pressures everynow and then too I used to be ocd on 1rst of every month now its just every now and then.

it was 108 2 days ago here now about 80's. not sure how much faster tires wear in summer. i bought a used set tires n wheels 315/75/r16 terra grapperlers with 16x10 wheels for 650$ they had 10/32s when i got them craigslist is best buddy.

-2004 F350 CCLB 4x4: Sinister Race solutions kit, CAT ELC Edge CS, SCT SF3, PHP Ficm programmer, Procomp, Rough country, and Nitto goodies.
-2004 excursion, banks exhaust, 03 turbo, afe intake
-2006 f350 king ranch, 10 in fabtech, 40in tires, sct tunes,

currently-1999 F250 SBRB 4X4 First 7.3 and feels good to be back in a diesel....

Interested in learning something new?

I guess I'm probably being stupid.
Tires are going to wear out, and its going to cost me

Funny thing is, I totally though that was weird when you said you picked up 35's and I noticed your sig said 8" lift. Haha
So you understand then. I'm currently running super lame, worn out 33's for the summer to save my good tires for hunting season. My truck looks like much less cool than it did, and I hate the way it drives with the 33's
Oh well, I'll consider it a penny saved for a few months.
