I ran my last set of NT-05's down into the wear bars and as rhouck said the grip goes away but I'm too cheap replace tires with tread remaining . I also swapped my wheels left to right at their last event. There wasn't enough tread left to make a difference which direction the tire was rolling.
I suspect from what you and rhouck mentioned, I will probobly see grip going down at next track day. I am hoping that flipping on rims would increase life for at least another weekend. No, I won't be at MSRH. I found out too late and also working Sat. If registration was not already full, I would attend Sun only.
