What is the Best Tire for Tread wear?

Looking for a tire with the best tread wear? Tires have a special treadwear rating system, Uniform Tire Quality Grade Standards (UTQG). The UTQG was created by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to help consumers have a way of understanding a tires tread life expectancy, as well as traction and temperature capabilities.

So going by the UTQG, the passenger tires with the best tread life are the Michelin Hydroedge & the Kumho Eco Solus HM KR22, both with a Treadwear rating of 800.
