Here is my best explanation:

'worn out' is the definition.

('tire' can be a synonym of 'wear out')

'wheels on a new york taxi may be' is the subsidiary indication.

I cannot quite understand how this works, but

'on' could be 're' ('on' can be mean 'with reference to') and 're' is present in the answer.

The remaining letters 'tid' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.

This explanation may well be incorrect...

'so' is the link.
