I'd expect a 500 treadwear tire to last a long time, but have POOR performance capability (compared to the stock rubber). I haven't seen any data on the tire, that's just my assumption.

That's a good commercial. I was a HUGE 4th gen fan and owned one for 12 years, but I honestly don't recall seeing that commercial in the mid/late 90's.
