Curious when everyone replaces their tires. I'm running BFG KO2's and i've got about .150 (little more than 4/32) thread depth left. I know most tire stores say to replace at 2/32 so technically i have some life left. I'm not having any issues on pavement but when i run the logging roads out here i'm feeling some slippage on the steep loose roads as well as some of the corners. I do about 80% on road so i'm not sure i want to drop 2K on tires just yet but i am starting to feel them off-road. Curious when you guys start to replace yours. Do you wait till you fish tail getting on the freeway in the rain or do you use the off-road performance loss as a guide?

I've always done mine way before 4-32 mainly due to being in Florida and rain + highway can make a fun drive home.
I forgot what level the stock KO's were at for my 2012, but after two hydroplaning events in the same day I bought tires that night.
