Tyre question

Does anyone know, how you to tell how much wear has taken place on a super corsa. I've done very little road milage so flat topping is not an issue. I know about heat cycles. All the wear at present is on the sides. Do I,
1 wait for it to wear out the lettering on the side wall.
2, wait for it to go bang !.

3, change it every so many track days.

4?????????????

4, change it after 9 laps of the TT course at average lap speeds of over 113mph, so less than 350 miles

Skidlids is that before the performance of the tyre drops off or before something horrible happens.
