6/32" Do I change now, or wait for a better deal?

My all seasons are at 5-6/32" last year when I took them off

Do I replace them now with my new tires at seasonal swap and take whatever rebates are available, or put them on now and wait for liquidations in July/august.

Obviously if I wait till summer, I pay for additional installation costs.

Is there any cracking in the rubber? Tread depth is only one indicator of tire life.

If the sidewall is bulging, then it's not safe to drive.

Buy a set of tires when the spring rebates start.

Costco has the re980 from Bridgestone on sale.

Overkill for an EV? Or do I go for it?

Anything else is like 180$ a tire in 215/50r17

If it's on sale and cheap, then get it, whether it's overkill or not.

Replace... we're in part of year when temps can be close to double digit one day and minus double digit another day. That can't be good for a patched bulging tire.

Check Costco like you did... also quattro, talon tires, etc.
