New snow tread

Approximately what is the tread depth of a brand new snow tire for a 128?

It depends on the tire?

Also isnt the standard for tires 12-16/32"?

Standard for most tires is 10/32 of tread depth with 2/32 being the top of the wear bar. Snow tires are generally optimum until 4-6/32 are left and snow and ice performance is reduced past that.

+1. Most winter & summer tires seem to be 10/32" now.
