Is the treadwear number the same for different manufactures of tires?

Why don't tire manufactures give the buyer options to purchase tires which are ultra low profile (30 and 35 series) in 18inch and 19inch sizes which will last a long time for long highway driving.

I do not mind loosing a little grip for extra long tire life (must be very very quiet). How often do you take the car to the max limit legally anyway? (except for on a racetrack).

If I want heaps of grip for track work I would use very sticky slicks and not road tires.
