I'm considering buying used slick tyres. When buying normal street tyres I'd normally look at the depth of the tread to know how many kilometers I can still do on them. However tread is non existent on slicks. How can I know how much rubber is left on used slicks?


There are wear indicators on the surface of the tire, they look similar to a drill hole, when it is to the bottom or non existent, the slick is worn out, also check for even wear across the surface from side to side.
