I would chuck them now. You're hitting wear bars.
I'm tempted to run them to San Diego. What PSI should I go with? I think I'm running 34 up front and 41 in the rear.I would not hesitate for one second to start off for SD. As another posted, keep your speed down...but as long as ANY tread is showing you have a viable tire for dry-surface use. After all, racers run on slicks, and the carcass between tread grooves is as thick now as when the tire was new.
When tread is low; wouldn't it make more sense to have a lower PSI as it would wear the middle part less quickly?I'd run 'em to SD, but you probably already knew that. Heck, all the storms are on the other coast after all. :biggrinjester: Keeping speeds down to me means don't go 80+, keep it to the limit mostly in other words. I'd bump the front up to at least 36psi.
Fwiw, I run my Shinkos at 40/40.
Please try to have some empathy. I've been riding just over a year, and lack your experience. And I'm embarking on a 1-2 year trip. Things like, "when should a tire really be replaced", or "is a tire worth carrying to South America" are important questions that I have no basis to judge given my inexperience. If there is a community to ask questions to, why not pose them? I have certainly asked and answered many questions that you won't see me posting about.Dude, you need to learn to answer these questions for yourself. You are headed for the big time and their isn't going to be anyone there to hold your hand. Adapt, improvise and overcome. Best of luck!
