Can someone tell me the tread depth on the center sipe of a new 709? And what is the depth at the end of life?

Thanks

Correct

6/32nds is correct, surprisingly. Doesn't seem to be enough, does it?



I now have one on the front with 6500 miles on it. Still has 3/32nds left. Guess it may go about 1100 or so.

Thanks. I have one with about 2-2 1/2-32's left. I know it will be time to re-tire soon, but it isn't quite to the bars. Sort of splitting hairs, and I don't mind throwing away marginal rubber, just wasn't sure what I had left.

I have no idea how many miles are on it. I guess I will take my own advice. I had to ask, so the time is now. LOL

Thanks again.
