    Question about the treadwear on tires...

    I was going to get a whole new set of tires because mine are shot and i was highly thinking of the BFGoodrich G-Force T/A KD either 275/40/17 or 315/35/17 but i noticed that the treadwear was 200... Now is it the lower the number the faster your rubber weares or is it the higher the number the less it wears? Also in traction it got AA and temp it got an A is it the more A's the better??

    Thanks 4 the help guys!

    true, but only when comparing within the same manufacturer.
    there is a loopwhole in the whole rating thing... since it's not legislated.
    Each manufacturer gives its own standard for 100 rating... and all their tires are compared to that one.
    200 vs 400 BFGoodrich means that the 200 will wear 2x faster than the 400
    200 Michelin vs 200 Nitto means NOTHING... wild guess @ the most.
