Tires still SAFE to drive on?

so, i noticed some wearing (showing threads) on the inner walls of the front passenger side tire. Someone recommended that I seriously get them swapped out and not drive. What's you guy's opinion? All the other 3 tires look fine.

if that were to blow out, youd probably damage the rim, possible fender damage depending on fitment, and considering the custom fenders and paint u have, its absolutely not worth the risk.

Not to mention that depending on speed, and just about any other factor involved, he can kill himself or someone else. Who cares about the car at that point.

That's what i'm saying! shyt, TIRES are so EXPENSIVE, tho. But I'll take everyone's advice and head over to Salinas Tire Co. in La Habra and see what they can do 4 me.

THANKS 4 THE QUICK REPLIES

Those are really pushing it... You probably want to get some new ones on there.

Are those Nexxen N3000's? If so, they're terrible tires.

Definately not safe.... I've actually been down this very same road a few times. Air ride + no camber kit kills the inside edges of tires.

youre not fixing the root of the problem just getting a new tire - if all your treadwear is uneven, i'd say get an alignment or a suspension check up kuz all of them are supposed to wear out evenly

and no thats not safe.
