Default Anyone Know the Nitto NT05 Tread Wear Rating?

Please post up if you know the expected/targeted tread wear rating. I couldn't find it on their official website or in the nasioc sticky above.

for all intents

tire wear ratings in this class of tire are 100% irrelevant and you will get as many miles out of them as you get based on useage......the number is not usefull for other than classification when racing----some 'classes' have to use a tire of minimun treadwear rating which is pointless for any other reason.

Most are lucky to get over 10k miles on the street at this level of tire.

if you are worried about treadwear....dont buy this class of tire

tread wear rating means nothing and is just really confusing!

Oh, and wait there's more ! Two different drivers with two different styles both using them for Auto-x, track use or street use, with two different suspension set-ups will get completely different results as well. By as much as 5000 miles. There is a reason that performance tires do not have the xx,xxx mile warranty.

Tire tread wear rating determines race classing (SCCA, NASA, Time Attack, etc...).

Nice edit. So you agree that it is very relevant to racers then.

It also is a good rough estimate for traction expectations. I know a 300 treadwear tire won't grip as well as a 140. I agree however that it is not so definite when the spread between the wear rating is small (eg 180 vs 140). I know my 140 wear tire will be far outgripped by a 40 wear rated tire.

Anyway, doesn't anyone know if this tire will be in the 140-200 range?

ok....once treadwear numbers are below 100...it is a pretty safe bet that it is an 'R' compound and not intended for daily use

treadewear ratings are not to be considered across brands as it is the manufacturer that actually decides what number to assign their tires----there is no 'standard' between brands.

Treadwear numbers in relation to MAX/UHP tires are useless as useage will deternine wear more than anything else.

The treadwear rating system is one of the dumbest things ever foisted upon people buying tires, especially at the MAX/UHP level

treadwear is a usefull guide line. i would not buy a tire only on the rating but in general for normal use a 200 will wear faster than a 300. it will of course vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. but in the same manufacturer a 300 will almost always last longer than a 200.

because i disagree with you i must be ignorant or inexpierenced. thats not a very mature stand on your part. i have infact grown up around cars driving is in my blood. i am also a ase certified mechanic.

i have run many a tire. i have asked oppinions on tires i havnt run and accept others ideas. but in my experiences as i said under normal street use tread wear ratings do add up. i never said a 240 will out last a 200 but in general a 300 will out last a 200. for example my falken azenis with a 200 and my girls falken FK-451 with a 280 same tracks, same weight car, same driving stylies and her tires lasted longer than mine. or how bout the hundredes of tires i replaced for work and gues what there is a record of milage on the ro's and guess which tires lasted longer than others and that was a high volume of test subjects so the error would be lower than just my experiences.

im not here to argue but you don't know me. don't treat me like i know nothing.

why are you arguing with me i know that treadwear ratings are set by the manufacturer not a central body. all im saying is that they are not as random as you might lead people to believe. a 200 and a 180 i wouldn't say one will wear faster than another but a 100 and a 200 or a 300 probably will.

i answered the original question and now im done with this thread. i joined to chat and meet cool people. if you want to argue thats fine but im going to be the bigger man and leave now.
