What Is A UTQG Treadwear Rating?

The UTQG (Uniform Tire Quality Grade) treadwear rating, also known as a treadwear grade, is a number stamped on the tire sidewall that relates to expected tire life.

In basic terms, and in the spirit of the concept, the higher the UTQG treadwear rating, the greater the tire life. A tire with a "600" treadwear rating is forecasted to last twice as long as a tire with a "300" rating, and should accumulate three times the mileage of a "200" rated tire.

To understand how treadwear ratings vary and for basic real world reference points, consider that standard touring all-season tires engineered for high mileage can have treadwear ratings in the "700-800" range. In contrast, motorsport tires for racing, which are focused on maximum grip (tire life is a distant secondary concern) might have a treadwear rating in the "100" range, or even less.
