JFGI.

The treadwear grade describes how long the tire manufacturer expects the tire to last. A Course Monitoring Tire (the standard tire that a test tire will be compared to) has a rating of "100". If a manufacturer assigns a treadwear rating of 200 to a new tire, they are indicating that they expect the new tire to have a useful lifespan that is 200% of the life of a Course Monitoring Tire.

basically it's a % of how long the tire will last. as stated above. you take this xxx% number and multiply it by 7,200

100% means the tire will last 7,200 miles, 200% means 14,400 miles so on and so forth. my tire is an touring tire with 645%

my other ride is an ambulance!

if you feel the new to drive like Ayrton Senna everyday, those factors will mean nothing, keep that in mind.
