One option is to stop by a tire retailer and ask them to measure your tread depths for you. I would suggest watching while they do it.any easy way to determine how much tread (x/32") I have left?
This ↑↑↑↑The real question is how many miles do you feel safe driving on OEM Tires. Back in 2011 my OEM Yokos S34 didn't feel safe after 10k when driving in the rain when turning or panic braking in wet weather. Being in the DC area two things you need are great brakes and the best wet weather tires you can afford. If you drive sedately and always slow down when turning good for you but when the tires start slipping you may find out your insurance deductible would be better spent on new tires.

You can also use US pennies and quarters to do it, as shown here: https://www.tirerack.com/winter/tech/techpage.jsp?techid=51
For greater accuracy and a specific reading when doing it yourself, this is a modestly priced tool that works well for me: Longacre Tread Depth Gauge 50562
I also have Yokohamas on my 2015 from the factory. I've got about 23,000 miles on them, and they are wearing well. I rotate them every 6000 miles or so.I'm at 32k and just rotated the tires yesterday (I do my own rotations)
They still have some meat left on them before they hit the wear bars and are wearing evenly for the most part
The outside of each tire is ever so slightly more worn than the inside, I had to look at it closely to even notice
Forgot to mention I have the AVID s34 Yoko's
