Just one commercial airplane tire can cost as much as $1,500.00 to $2,000.00 depending on the tire brand and quality of the tire.

Sometimes airplane tires for commercial airplanes can be retreaded and used for longer service intervals.

Airplane tires on commercial airplanes usually last around 250 landings before needing replacing due to the skidding wearing out the tread on the tires.

That is where most of the wear comes from on airplane tires is when the airplane lands and skids and then you see smoke coming off the airplane tires.

That's a result of the airplane tires skidding when making contact with the runway when landing so it creates some smoke.
