Here is a tire with about 1000 miles.

This is a front tire.

The right rear could look like the next picture with only 1000 miles.

This number has some wear but still clearly visible. This number is above the "R" in Terrain.

There are little dots and numbers all along the edge of the tread. Dots visible above. 

Those along the edge can last to about 3000 miles.

A new tire and one with less than 50 miles.

The paint on the tread lasts less than 200 miles.

Other markings on the tread are hard to see in pictures but they last less than 1000 miles.

Once you are past 1000 miles on these tires you have to rely on accurate tire tread depth measurements.

JK Wrangler tires wear-the first 2000 miles (normal asphalt)

On the Bridgestone Dueler A/T's 

The nubs and paint on the tread is very visible. With about 200 miles or less the paint is gone and the nubs have some wear.  With about 1,000 miles the nubs are very worn and hard to see. With about 2000 miles and no tire rotation done, the right rear tire nubs would be gone. 


On the Goodyear Wrangler SRA's 

The paint and little rectangles are visible.  With about 200 miles or less the paint is gone.  With about 1,000 miles the little rectangles near the edge of the tread are nearly gone.  With 2,000 miles and no tire rotation done, the right rear tire rectangles would be gone. 


On the BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM's 

The little hairs are all over the tread. With about 200 miles or less the hairs are almost all gone. With 1,000 miles they are gone but the hairs on the edge should all still be there.  At about 2,000 miles the hairs on the edge of the tread start to disappear 

All the Wrangler tires on the "sets" page have the proof of under 100 miles, unless noted.


All the Wrangler tires on the "special sets" page show the actual pictures of the actual sets.
