A 2024 study found that electric vehicle (EV) tires have less durability and wear out more quickly than traditional gas-powered car tires, posing another problem for Biden’s push to transition Americans to EVs.

The J.D. Power study showed EV owners reported more tire wear, as EV tires naturally wear faster due to greater vehicle weight and torque.

“Findings from the study highlight EV owners having less satisfaction with the durability of their tires, expecting them to wear similar to gasoline-powered vehicle tires. However, EV tires naturally wear quicker because of greater vehicle weight and higher torque,” Automotive News reported.

This created an opportunity for manufacturers to better educate EV owners on proper tire maintenance.

The findings add to a separate survey that EVs have almost 80% more problems than gas cars.

“This gap in satisfaction creates an opportunity for tire manufacturers and automakers to ensure EV owners are properly educated,” Ashley Edgar, senior director of benchmarking and alternative mobility at J.D. Power, stated.

Still, Biden has aggressively pursued a green agenda requiring automakers to produce and sell more EVs, with a new rule ensuring most new cars sold by 2032 are electric or hybrid.

Dealers have pleaded with Biden to slow down the transition, noting EVs are piling up unsold as gas cars continue selling far more quickly.
