I'm new and I see peeps changing their tires on this forum around 5000 miles or so . Maybe a stupid question but how do you tell? Obviously if you don't ride much and have some dry rot goin' on would be definitely a good time to change. Is there a typical measurement of tread showing that will tell me when it's time to change?Hey Dave. If you look at your tires between the treads there are little raised tread wear indicators. When the tread wears down far enough to make those indicators touch the road it is about time. The exception this is the Metzler Z6, the tread wear indicators are really tough to find on those. You will find that mileage will vary greatly. I seem to get about 3000 miles out of Sport tires and was only getting abut 4000 or so out of sport touring tires. Some guys here seem to get double that or more. I think that mileage will be dictated by terrain you ride, the pavement type (very course here) and your right hand.,,,
