Buying a new set of tires for your car or truck can be difficult. What does the tire treadwear rating mean? The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under conditions that are controlled on a specific government test course. The higher the tire treadwear rating, the longer it should take for the tread of the tire to wear down.
For example, a tire with treadwear of 200 would wear twice as well as tire treadwear of 100. However, differences in driving habits, tire service practices, climate, and road characteristics will affect a tire’s longevity. At Kwik Kar Marsh, we can help you decide which tires are best for your driving habits.
