When to replace slicks?

Not interested in putting slicks on for the moment but I had a pretty newbish question...

When running slicks on the track, how do you know when it is time to change them? I was always curious about this.

There's a couple tiny little dimples in them when they're worn smooth throw away.

It is also about feel. Can't always go by the dimples.

Oh I'm not writing a novel. But for him when the dimples are worn out just throw the tires away.

True Anthony, was unsure if there were any type of indicators also.

Having a hard time?
