If those were mine I'd keep running them. They've got plenty of tread left. I'd rock them all the way down to the wear bars.

If you are really unhappy with them, you could consider selling them now while they still have some tread left.

Then put that money towards the new tires.

I'm not sure.

But for a good starting point, measure the tread depth and compare to tread depth when new to determine the percent they are worn. Price them out new. Adjust the new price by the percentage they are worn.

Mud tires suck in snow and on slippery roads. For winter you want an All Terrain tire.
