I Can't fine any wear bar on my Bridgestone Battlax BT020R Bias-Belted rear tire. Does this tire have a wear bar? Tire has 9th miles on it. It also has some bumps on the tire about 1 inch, on both sides off center is this cupping?
Is the new Metzler ME888 out yet and has any one tried one yet and will it out last the Bridgestone?

I am getting better mileage out the BT 020 (9,800) than I ever got out of the 11 ME 880s I ran (6-9,000). There are wear bars look along the side wall for a triangle, it points to were a wear bar is located. They are close to the centerline but not on it.

cupping, yup.
Look at the depth of the grooves in the center where most of the tire ware occurs.
