I definitely will buy new ones for next year as I am switching wheel/tire sizes. Do I need to move that up to this year? Here's the background. I only made four passes last year due to COVID and both times I went to the track someone blew up and oiled down the track. I haven't been out this year yet so there's still plenty of tread, but this is the fourth season. Since the local track shut down I don't want to drive 1.5 - 2 hours and not be able to hook.

With the level of difficulty many members have had tracking down new rubber…keep em, prepped surface they should do fine. Or even street hooning, good to go.

I would order the new ones now- who knows when you'll get them and the price will likely be higher the longer you wait. Meanwhile your current tires look new so use them.

I'm more concerned with the rubber turning hard. I know I have plenty of tread. By measurement the tread is just half used.

I’ve they’ve been out of the sun and extreme temps, they should be fine. Do a big burnout to scrub the outer layer off when you get to the track.
