Tires with the Best Treadwear

Tire tread is important for your tires to grip the road well. It helps prevent your vehicle from slipping and sliding in bad weather. The higher the treadwear number, the longer it should take your tread to wear down. To measure treadwear, the NHTSA used a control tire with a grade of 100 to help with the driver education process. When tested against the control tire, if a tire received a 200 grade it meant the tire should last twice as long.
