I won't be too thrilled to replace the tire so soon. I don't think it has more than 4k miles on it, and there is still plenty of tread depth. (Pirelli Angel GT).

The same tire I've been running on my SV, I've been replacing them because of wobble not because they are worn .

bike's front wheel must be in the air

another way to check the bearing on the ground is:

squeeze the front brake, grab the top bearing cap AND touching the frame (SOLID NON MOVING REFERENCE) and rock the bike back and forth with your legs. Any movement in the bearing cap will will either need and adjustment or replacing.
