    tread depth of stock rear tire

    I was thinking it may be time to buy a new rear tire. But not sure. Anyone know what the tread depth on a new stock rear tire?

    I have one in the garage that looks new (it's not); the tread blocks measure 1/2" deep. Some people feel that tires should be replaced if they are more than about 6 to 10 years old. Probably not a big deal if you're just putting around in the dirt, but if you spend time out on the highways you may want to give it some thought. See here for more information, if you're interested.

    Looks like about 1/2" as B-dub states is about right. On this website, they list the tread depth as 15/32. Bridgestone TW34 Series 180/80-14 Rear Tire | 210-0032 | J&P Cycles

    Thanks, so my tire is about 1/2 gone in the center. Hmm, now what to do.
