80-grit sandpaper
Explanation:
The tire must stand up to 80-grit sandpaper as well. I have bought sandpaper in the US and in Germany for my woodworking shop. The grit sizes are the same in both countries. For metal working emory paper is used and is also known as wet/dry paper. But it appears the point here is that the company's tires have to stand up to tough conditions. Yes, 80-grit is coarse.
