I think a new back tyre might be required soon.

hmm, only worn on the left, are you making a lot of left turns on your way to work?? and then cycling home backwards??

ditch the knobbly stuff and get some semi-slicks with kevlar sleeves, you'll forget how to change them before they wear out.

hmmmm ... maybe not so grippity.

plenty grippity! I'm currently running Bontrager Hardcase Cruizers, which don't even skid on wet leaves!

meant 540's tyres but glad for a tip for something more grippity. My wife followed your advice on a decent bicycle maintenance book.

I think that slicks, or at least "street" tyres, will be the replacement for sure.
Sprocket, that's the angle dude, the tyre is slick in the middle now, but has plenty grip on both sides :)
