I will second that! I live in the mountains of Wyoming, and we replace
our tires at roughly 1/3 of treat left. When you hit snow, ice, water
on the road, etc. the worn tire will not grip.
The cost of the tires is a whole lot less than the repairs to the
vehicle, down time, missed work in dealing with it, increased insurance
rates due to the accident, etc.
And I personally want to see that my family is safe, no matter who is
driving. But then we put on about 25-30k miles each year.
I consider it cheap insurance.
