2013 Gas Yamaha w/20K miles. Replaced them at approx. 17k miles after a flat that that when repaired continued to leak (hole was too big for the plug.) They were worn thin in the center. I run 32 to 35 lbs.

I saw that and got a kick out of it. I got 40K out of my last three New Fords. Flex, Escape, Transit Disconnected, what a Bomb. All of them had Hankook Tires. N.G. Changed to Michelin Or Goodyears. Big deal if a post is a little off the mark. Who's perfect?

Just a guess. About 5 years old and maybe 18,000 miles and might get another 5 years???.
As noted air pressure is important. If low the inside or outside edge of the tire will wear rather fast. If wear is even and the tire still has some tread I would think you are ok. Maybe on a heavy rain day try some fast stops in a safe area and see how the tires perform.

Good advise.

Assuming you had 10” Loadstar tires, they may have been wearing thin in the center because of over inflation. I run 26-28 lbs in my tires and the wear is pretty even.
