TREADWEAR

The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear rate of the tire when tested under controlled conditions on a specified government test course. For example, a tire graded 150 would wear one and one-half (1½) times as well on the government course as a tire graded 100. The relative performance of tires depends upon the actual conditions of their use, however, and may depart significantly from the norm due to variations in driving habits, service practices and differences in road characteristics and climate.

CAUTION

If treadwear is uneven across the tire, or a tire wears excessively, the vehicle should be checked by your Retailer/Authorized Repairer as soon as possible.

When the tread has worn down to approximately 2 mm, wear indicators start to appear at the surface of the tread pattern. This produces a continuous band of rubber across the tread as a visual reminder.

WARNING

Wear indicators show the minimum tread depth recommended by the manufacturers. Tires which have worn to this point will have reduced grip and poor water displacement characteristics.

NOTES

Local legislation may determine a greater tread depth to that shown by the tire wear indicators. It remains the driver’s responsibility to make sure the tread depth meets the local legal requirement. Do not rely on the tread wear indicators alone.
