Question Do these tyres look normal after 900km???

Hi all,
I noticed my 19" Pilot Sports seem to have some marbelling on them and look quite scrubbed up after 900km.

Is this normal?

Do other owners have a similar looking wear pattern on their tyres?

These are the front tyres that I am referring to.

Yeah they fine for a tire that has been pushed hard.I am surprised that you have done that much in only 800 kms,so you must have some fun roads to play on

Yup, looks normal if you've been been driving some twisty roads. I'm jealous! haha.
