    I have a few questions on tires.
    If i drive about 10 miles a day, approx what percent of the tread will wear off after 1 month?
    With 10 miles a day, approx how long could i use tires with 20% tread left on them? 60%?
    Thx a lot

    Well, most of it depends on your driving style, street condition, air pressure, tire make and model, mechanical condition of your vehicle (see where this is going??), etc. BUT, if you drive like a sane person and have a well-maintained vehicle, I'd say you could go for quite some time driving 10 mi/day and not worry much about tires. Hope this helps.

    Also remember that 70% of tire life is in the last 50% of tread.Because of less tread squirm that causes heat.And the tread gets stiffer the shorter it gets.
