If a person is buying tires based on the treadwear rating, how good is a tire with a rating of 620?

Editorial Comment:

For a complete understanding of treadwear, it's pros and cons you'll probably want to read our article on Tirewear.

To give you a quick answer to the question, however, 620 may be a fairly good rating for a tire.

The rating is based on a comparison to a tire with a rating of 100, so a rating of 620 is more than 6 times better.

These days I seldom see tires with ratings lower than 200 to 300 and it's rare to see ratings of over 700.

See the article mentioned above, for more details on how to use the rating and getting the most out of it.
