Volvo XC90: Wheels and tires / Tread wear indicator

The tread wear indicator shows the status of the tire's tread.

Volvo XC90. Tread wear indicator

The tread wear indicator is a narrow elevated strip running across the tire's longitudinal tread grooves. The letters TWI (Tread Wear Indicator) are visible on the side of the tire.
