Tire manufacturers use a treadwear rating called UTQG (see Tire
Rack's web site for background on this and UTQG ratings on other tires) -
D60A2 = 320
D40M2 = 200
(D40 lasts 200% of benchmark, D60 lasts 320% in standardized test).
However, note the 60 is h-rated all-season and the 40 is z-rated
high-performance. Performance here is very different.
