When the tire is worn down to the indicators that are set at 1/32nd inch (0.8 millimeters) or when the tread groove depth is even less, it's time to change.

On a street tire: time to change. On a track tire: don't run them in the wet anymore.


You should be able to get another trackday out of them, but they might be a little less tacky than they were.

You got 5 track days out of it.. its time to change it.
I get 2-3 days out of Gpa's and Gp Uk.

Dont push it.. I learn the hard way once and I almost lost it at barber and my tires were just on the Indicator.
They still hold but nowhere near as good.

They do inspect the bikes before they let you on the track (tech inspection)

I went down on the last session of the day around 4:45.. I rode all day like crazy and was just not paying close attention to my bike.

I think tires must be over 75/80% left.

Knowing that you have GOOD tires! is one less thing you'll have to worry about. Confidence = fast.

Let me know if you need help.
