The wear indicators equal 2/32" tread left on the carcass. That may be enough for dry pavement driving but with that little tread left, I doubt that wet weather driving traction would be good, plus, a tire with little tread is prone to getting punctures as well.

I'd replace them before the tread wear bars are close to showing and especially if the tires exhibit poor wet road traction.

I agree with the other posts --- its okay to run them flat in dry weather. Replace the tires at the end of the summer.
