If these are the original tires you definitely need to replace them. Rubber degrades over the years and 30+ years is way beyond there usable lifespan.

Tire wear varies depending on the compond of the tire to the road conditions to the riders style. All tires have wear indicators just like car tires. You can find where they are located by looking at the edge of the tread area, they normally are marked by a triangle or a small elephant in the case of Metzler tires. You can also measure your tread depth with a penny. Rule is if you can see the top of Lincoln's head the tread depth is less than 1/32 and needs to be replaced.

I guess maybe it is probably to retain the matching look of the tires. If for instance your sponsors were the Shinko company, they would certainly want their front and rear Shinko Tires appear uniform to also add onto the bike's aesthetic value
