If I can upload a photo--this is what my tire looked like after 4,400 miles on a back wheel. I live in southern California, with pretty good weather year-round. Basically all of those miles were on paved surfaces, with the amount of debris that shoulders & side-of-the-road bike paths have. I thumb-check tire pressure every week or so, and was shocked that all of a sudden I was down below the outer coating--it must have happened pretty quickly. In the ca. 18 months I had this tire on I think I got only a couple of flats, and was very pleased with that.
The traction was fine, never skidded out on sand or anything like that.
