Your Thoughts On My Tires!

I know I need to replace my SuperCorsa soon but looking at these tires, you do think I need them "this weekend"? The manual says thread should be no less than 3mm and I think I'm just a little below that on the centerline (probably 2.5 to 2mm), while the sides are at 3mm.

I already have the replacement Michelin 2CT at home but the scheduling's bad right now. Think I can hold off about two or three weeks, especially since my riding is mostly 30-50mph canyon riding? Thanks for your opinion.

No, not at all. Problem is, a part of me (the cheapo) is saying thread's still good for a few weeks, while the other part (safety conscious nanny) says "You've got the tires already -fix your schedule and put them on!

I would probably do about another 100-200 miles on them. The question you have to ask is it cheaper for tires or for doctor visits and lots of parts for the bike.

I think its your call Alan. I suspect you have been around motorcycles long enough to know. If your gut feeling says change them, then change them. I don't know what the legal tread requirements are in the USA.

Well you CAN put some more miles on them, but unless you HAVE to i think you would do better if you just put the new ones now.
You won't loose much.......

Does your security or life are worth a pair of tires ?

When you ask yourself "Do I have to change my tires ?" The only good response is always YES !

Just my personnal point of view.
