How long it will last depends on how your ride, your total load, heat, road surfaces, etc.
I haven't gotten more than 8 or 9000 miles out of a rear Tourance.
But, you can look at it in financial terms:
With 6600 miles on the tire, you've already gotten at least 3/4 of it's useful life out of it, and those are the best handling, best riding miles too.
So what you have left is maybe 1/4 the life, the hard riding, worst-handling 1/4th.
I just ordered a new rear and it cost me $149. So, if you pay the same thing, it'll cost you about $37 to toss that old rough-riding, iffy rear and replace it with a great-riding, great-handling new one.
Is $37 too much to pay for a better ride, better handling, and better peace of mind starting out your trip? Is $37 too much to pay not to have to yank a rear tire and spend time replacing it during your vacation?
If it were me, I'd think it was cheap insurance.
