Any information between the abuse that the tranny receives and the tire tread quality?

I would think that with an AWD system, using soft, sticky tires, which have a lot more grip, would cause the tranny to be under a lot more stress than a tire that is harder and has the ability to "slip" more.

Food for thought.

Re: Correlation between soft/hard tire tread and tranny wear? (phuz)

Not under any kind of Normal driving situations.
You may have a point if you're doing dump clutch starts, etc.
