A recent bike was purchased with worn tires but still have tire pattern and work fine. How does one tell when it is time to change, or should I just put new ones on now?

Saddle question

I have heard that the more upright one rides, the wider the saddle should be . But many of the hybrids seem to have very narrow saddles. Why is that?

They are lightweight, cute as a bug, and seem like the perfect bike to ride to someone's house or a store where you don't want to leave a bike outside. I'm surprised I don't see more of them.
