Tires are among the most commonly replaced parts on vehicles
Tires are among the most commonly replaced parts on vehicles. They are not cheap and shopping for them is confusing. When we look for tires, many of us pay attention to the warranty that accompanies them as a way of getting reliable and long-lasting tires – sometimes paying a hefty premium for high performance. Tire manufacturers test their tires in house. Tires are inflated to the optimal pressure and then the tires spin on specially designed treadmills. The thread-life warranties are presented in a mileage estimate. If a tire has worn out evenly across the tread well before its estimated mileage limit, it may qualify for replacement.Of course, the tire manufacturer would like to minimize warranty replacements by making sure that their tires meet the mileage standard. To this end, the production manager of a tire company is testing their mileage warranty of 30,000 miles. To do the test, 60 tires are put through the treadmill test. When the tires are worn down to the 2/32nd thread-wear indicators, the mileage is recorded.
