Default tyre wear with hard and soft springs

if you had the same tyres on your car. would having stiff springs give you more or less tyres wear than having soft ones?

Softer=less tire wear. With stiffer springs your car generates less traction with the suspension and relies on the tires more. Keep in mind that you can go too soft and have a car that wallows around too much.
