The treadwear on the budget-oriented Federal tires is 250. “I thought they looked good and filled up the wheelwells,” Richard says. “I wanted a compromise between performance and looks. The tire store—Vista Tire Pros—actually had a bunch of different-sized used tires that they tried on to see how they would fit.
