A tread wear rating is a ratio that determines how long a tire will last based on type of tire, road conditions, etc.

For example an all season tire on a crown vic may have a tread wear rating of 400 due to the fact that it will be used for daily commuting. A high performance tire will always have a lower tread wear rating due to the fact that it will potentially be used for high performance driving. My Nitto drag radials have a rating of 100.
