I have a 2015 Yamaha gas cart. I have about 300 hours on mine and I need new tires pretty soon. I do not have an odometer. If I am averaging 10mph, then I have 3000 miles on mine.

Seems a little early for tires.

They are 10" and the usual brand.

I wonder if the tires are all that similar and if they actually get made of different compounds from one year to the next.

Just sold a 2015 with over 20,000 miles and almost 1200 hours. Still had original tires in good (not great) shape. Preventative Maintenance is the trick.

As stated, the tires can last 20k plus miles. Proper air pressure and alignment is the key

My 10” Loadstar tires have 15k miles and may go another 10k miles.

It also depends on yore driving habits. IMO once the tires get about half worn or more they loose there grip when payment wet and some start thumping. Then there dry rot in about 5 years.

25 PSI 5000 Miles in two years they look like the day I bought the Cart. I check the pressure every Monday just like the Car. Better safe than sorry!

Your answer is at least 20,000 your results may vary.

So many variables that an answer is really a guess. However, I will guess that all things being equal, figure about 8-9 years.

13,000 on my 4 seat Yamaha. Wearing well. Maintain 32 lbs. all around. I should get 25,000+ miles.
