Front Potenzas at 4/32

SA says wait a little longer to

Shoulda' done the fronts, right?
No ware bars, but getting louder.

With only 4/32", I'd replace the fronts as well, especially if you get a lot of rain in your area.

But I would carefully price shop at Tire Rack and local tire shops before buying from a dealer.

+1. Tires begin to lose much of their hydroplaning resistance and wet traction below 4/32nds tread depth.
