Baby needs new shoes

So I just got my delivery from TireRack today. I think I still have a few hundred miles left on the old ones, as long as there is no rain in the forecast.
Old and new are Sumitomo HRZ 3. They were on the car when I bought 2 years 24k miles ago. The fronts are still in decent shape but I will replace next spring. I hope I get another 24k + miles out of the backs

The PO of my car had the HTR Z III installed and I bought 2 new backs as part of the PPI, after 10,000 miles and several track days and autocrosses they were still holding up great, I went ahead and replaced them with some Hankook RS-3 for better grip on the track/autocross.

My fronts still have 4/32 left dot code 0810 after 30,000+ miles , backs have 7/32, DOT code 2512 after 10,000+, if it is your backs that are worn out there is a lot of life left in the backs, and some in the fronts.... If I wasn't doing more track days I would still be on them, they are good tires.
