Here’s a picture of my 4200 mile rear tyre, the sides as always look great it’s the centre, what do you guys think
II agree that you're good for 500 to 1000 miles more.
In terms of a mm thread limit, I think that's so hard to say. On my scrambler I'm typically riding back roads and so the wear is fairly even, but on my Multistrada where I do high levels of motorway riding, they tend to "square off" and so even though the actual tread depth is good, the transition from upright to lean is not smooth. Therefore I tend to change my tire on "squareness" not depth.
On my Diavel - heavy, powerful bike - I've run all the way down to the cords below the rubber. Not recommended.
Also, if you're just commuting or doing relatively local mileage, then changing tires is not such a big deal - you have plenty left. If you're about to embark on a 500 mile ride, then I would change those tires before leaving.
If you're riding in the wet a lot, that may change your thinking.
Would be more helpful to zoom out on the picture more to get an overall feeling on the entire tire.
What would you recommend for road (and probably track) riding Sarah?I had the same experience with Angel GT's-- went from decent tread on the rear to nearly no tread in just a very few miles. Watch those tires closely as you put the miles on.
I'm not one to ask Phil, I'm certain I don't come near pushing the traction limits like some of you do. You might just stick with the MT60's, that sense of confidence as you enter a turn is worth a lot.What would you recommend for road (and probably track) riding Sarah?
I love the Mt60's, and am hesitant about changing because I have never tried anything else. They have stuck like glue. In the Ardennes my chicken strips virtually disappeared.
I don't in the UK where you never know what is round the corner in terms of traffic or road surface.I'm not one to ask Phil, I'm certain I don't come near pushing the traction limits like some of you do.
