  1. The ornamental design for a tire tread, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a tire tread showing my new tire tread design, it being understood that the tire tread has a pattern repeated over the outer circumference and shoulder of a tire, the opposite side being the same as that illustrated; and,

FIG. 2 is a enlarged fragmentary front elevation view of the tire tread thereof.

The broken line disclosure of a tire sidewall and inner bead is for illustrative purposes only and forms no part of the claimed design.
