it depends on wheel condition, balance, road conditions, inflation, driving style, weather...

In general, the larger the number, the longer the treadlife. A 360 rated tire will last 3.6 times longer than a 100 rated tire in a given situation.

That rating is based on the 100 per each manufacturer. They each have their own standard of what a 100 treadwear is.
