How long do Star Specs last?

I have Star Specs that are down to barely any tread left. Tread is still plainly visible, no cording, just not very deep. Are they still useful at nearly bald?

For dry weather street driving yes. For rain no. For competitive autocross, no.

Oh thanks! I always though tread was mostly for wet surfaces and not as much for traction when dealing with sticky rubber?
