You're kinda on your own once you get past eight years, especially with wide temperature variations (like you might find in AK) between at-rest cold and at-speed warm. Otherwise I just use the penny trick for checking tread depth and be done with it.

I've never used the penny wear test before, I just observed it with my eyes. Thanks @ Elvis Telecom and everyone. I found out this article about the penny used to check the tread depth, https://tireer.com/penny-tire-test/ it is really helpful for me right now.

Always check your tyres before you drive. There should be about four.
