Having a new set of tires will provide a cushion of safety for the next 65,000 to 100,000 miles of the vehicle's life (depending on the tire tread-wear rating). At the same time, new tyres increase the ability of your vehicle to stop, go and turn.
The distance it takes for your car to come to a stop, or the speed at which you can enter a turn all depends on the quality of your tires. They determine how much power your vehicle can put to the ground, and whether or not you can brake fast enough to safely control it. Most tires are performance-oriented and are made from stickier compounds with aggressive tread designs.
The condition of your tyres can drastically affect your gas. If you have a set of worn out tires with an uneven tread pattern, your gas mileage will suffer because your car must work harder to put its power to the ground.
The way your tires perform in different road and weather conditions greatly depends on their compound and tread life.
New tyres with deeper functioning treads and designs are great for long trips because they provide the driver with a smoother ride.
