Looking at getting new tyres, and I'm sick of the salespeople telling me this that and the other, only to get the car on the road and find the tyres are hard as hell, or wear out after 10 000Km!
So, what do the numbers mean - treadwear, traction, etc?
I figure if I know that I've got a much better chance of getting tyres which are actually what I need :p

Like, for example, treadwear = 280, traction = A, and whatever the other one is which I can't remember - something to do with the compound I believe.
I know I've seen it on tyres before, but I'll be buggered if I can find it on the tyres I have now!
