How much longer will my front tires last?

Are the cracks in my tires a bad sign?

Doesn't look good to me. I would replace it.

Do you want to have a blow out on your bike? The question is rhetorical to me. Get a new tire(s) on there.

Negative 30 days.

That means it's been done.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but...there's no buts...

Ok will replace ASAP. Do front tires have cords like the rear tire? I've ridden till cords show on my rear tire and it was still fine.

Ties, front and rear have what are called "wear bars".

See here for examples...

Because of the profile, these tires seem to be less susceptible to hydroplane. Regardless, wet traction is reduced. Worn tires also lack the flexibility of a fresh set and are more prone to uncontrolled slip.
