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

FIG. 1 is a perspective view of a tire tread showing our new design, it being understood that a tread pattern is repeated over the outer circumference of the tread width and the adjacent shoulders of the tire, the opposite side perspective view being a mirror image thereof; and,

FIG. 2 is a enlarged fragmentary front elevation view of the tread pattern of FIG. 1.

In the drawings, the dark stippled surface shading represents the recessed portion of the tread grooves having a depth as best shown along the right edge of FIG. 1. The broken line disclosure of a tire sidewall and inner bead are for illustrative purposes only and form no part of the claimed design.
