tires wear down fast, especially knobs...so you have a "gearing change" by the time you wear out the life of the tread...since its gradual you dont notice it immediately

by the time I wear out my knobs I lose some topspeed...thats all I notice as well as the obvious loss of traction...

I would just compare how the bike feels before the gearing swap...then change front sprockets

lastly

not all tires are labeled or sized equally meaning a 110 maxxis might be the same size as a 130 t63 for example...

cheers
