How many miles would one get with 4/32 Thread?


Would they handle the snow well? (the tires in question are all season Michelin tires)

thanks

4/32 is almost done. i think 3/32 is the legal limit

depends on the tread wear rating. i'd say its time for a new set though.

Those tires dont sound too safe.

thats getting towards the end of the tire's life, however depending on treadwear you could reasonably drive for a good chunk of time. the most immediate noticeability in diminished performance will be rain and/or snow traction. i would maybe give them a shot in some slick conditions and if they dont feel good, get rid of them because thats just a definite sign that its the wear to blame.

look at the tires. you'll see wear bars in the sipes... when the thread is even with that, the tire is gone.

also, its not going to handle snow (or water of any kind) well...

edit: 2/32s is about the absolute limit.
