Should I get new tires at 7/32 thread depth?

I have another 10 months to go on these tires before the end of lease.
Would it be worth getting new tires. I roughly expect to drive 15k kms on the tires. They are Continentals.

Usually lease requires 4/32 when you return the car (assuming you don’t have excess wear protection)

Imo, I think you should be okay as long you drive them conservatively and inflate at proper pressure

Maybe wait till after the 10 months and see how much tread you have left but unless you drive a ton you should be okay.

no need. the tires will not wear out to the min required for a lease return.

Do you put winter tires? 5 out of the next 10 months will be winter. You are safe to swap to winter tires from NOV to APRIL, then you will be good to use the current tires for 5 months at 7/32 and no problem returning the car with them.
