27.5 + tires

I run 27.5+ tires tubeless at low pressure. If I ride two miles to a trail on the road(4 miles round-trip) am I putting unneeded wear on my tires?

Any time on asphalt is likely more wear on your tires than dirt trails, but the additional cost you accrue by accelerating the wear on your tires is still going to be cheaper than the amount of money you save on gas for your car/truck. Plus it's just more miles you're riding which is never bad.
