Truth is it depends on the aircraft. The heavier the plane the fewer landings on each tire. Light aircraft can normally use the same tires repeatedly over a long period whereas a cargo or commercial airliner maybe just a few over a short period. Tires. like many other components are inspected regularly and replaced when required.

Airliner tires last for about 300 takeoffs and landings but they are continuously examined for damage and might be replaced much sooner.

Howard - What kind of aircraft do you work on? The regional jets that I worked on got an average of 100 flight cycles (take-offs and landings) on a set of tires with a "must replace" limit of 120 cycles.

Impossible to answer. Too many variables. Some of our DC-3 tires were on the planes for years. A lot of our pilots thought they were smarter than the anti-skid systems. They could usually destroy a new tire in one landing. Especially if they were on a wet runway.
