Lightman, I think the treadwear limit shows at 2/32nd's. New tires are around 11/32nd's. A tire dramatically loses wet-weather performance even at 5/32nd's. So why wait? Change them soon. The farther a tire is worn the less resistant it is to hydroplaning, a factor that weighs heavily, especially in your area.
