    Generally, at 3/32" they're close, at 2/32" they're even with the wear bars and done. So, to answer, yes. One more season as long as the edges are still good and not showing secondary rubber (bald spots).

    You may get another season out of them but a thorough inspection is in order. Take a close look at the sidewalls (both inside and outside walls) looking for potential dry rot or cracking that can indicate aging other than just wear. If in doubt, take it to a tire shop and get their opinion. Let them know you are concerned and they should help.
