Tires, the only objects that touch the ground on a vehicle, play an extremely important role in vehicle ownership. A typical tire lasts around 30-40 thousand miles, or three to four years depending on how much driving a car owner does. Accounting for the occasional flat or punctured tire, a car owner will typically purchase a new set of tires three to four times in a 10-year ownership time span. The tire market is extremely competitive with well over 20 brands vying for consumer dollars. The challenge for brands is to remain top of mind in a long purchase cycle category.
