    However you add it up, I don't think the first 1/32" should count! :mrgreen:
    Or would you call that, the last 1/32":rolleyes:

    There are many factors that can determine the answer to you question. Unfortunately the answers are not simple. First it would have to be known the specific tread compound of the tires in question. Every type of tread compound will have different rates of tread wear. Driving habits play a huge role in tire wear, and also maintenance, are the tire rotations done properly, is the car aligned properly? Also most tires will wear faster as the tread gets lower. part of the reason for this is that the tire has less ability to dissipate heat that builds up.
