Default How far do you let your tires run down..

before you replace them?

I came across this topic in another forum about tire wear, and just thought i'd start a thread here to discuss it.

My DH works in a collision shop. So sadly we've seen too many cars come in that have been in accidents, that could of been prevented with better tires.

I have my 2 yr old that is with me 90% of the time. I personally don't keep tires on my vehicles that are under 7/32nds tread.

I'll get them at junkyards or on Craigslist, and never paid more than $125 for a full set so far, and even reselling them for $100 set is more cost effective for me than buying new tires.

I also believe that at least here in NY it should be mandated to have winter tires on at least in Jan and Feb.
