Yea ARD. Tell that to people who are getting 9k-12k miles on a set of tires which are 300 tread ware on their 550's when driven like and old lady. Tread ware helps but is not the complete picture. Better yet the people getting 45k-50k on a set which people swear that they should have never gotten more than 35k max.
