HELP! How much tread on these tires?

...got a set of 18" tires and before mounting them, wanted to know how much approx. life is left..i know there's not a whole lot of rubber but i'm thinking 30%? tires are michelin pilot HXM4 all seasons.

I just want ONE season out of these before i replace during the next winter season (i have a dedicated set of winter rims/tires)

pix of all 4:

Looks like you'll get at least one dry season out of them aslong as you don't drive like a madman

What do the shoulders look like? Judging by the centers you'll get a coulpe seasons outta them if your alignment is good and your not doin smoke shows.

Looking at the wear indicators, you are between 3 and 5/32th. Safe for dry, be careful on wet.
