Re: When to replace tires
My new rule of thumb is, if I'm thinking that I might need new tires, then I probably do and should get them.
I just got my first set (ever) of new motorcycle tires mounted. Initially I didn't know whether they were due to be replaced or not, just by looking at them. Looking at the new ones, I definitely needed to replace them. A huge difference in tread. They are the same brand tires so it's an apples to apples comparison.
I figure the tires are one of the most important things keeping me upright, if not THE most important. Personally, I don't like the idea of pushing the safety envelope of tire wear just to postpone buying new ones. Yes, tires are expensive, but I'd rather be safe than sorry.
