    Or when there a so many little cuts in the tread that you don't trust it.

    When you have two or more punctures in three or four days' riding. The tread surface becomes so thin that riding over gravel causes punctures.

    +1 on the flat tire test. They ain't broke unless they are giving you some problem.
