Where do you measure tread depth on a tire???

so i always measure my tread depth to make sure of even wear, but i measured today and here's what i found.

Fronts:

Outer tire - 4/32
Inner tire - 6/32

Rears:

Outer tire - 6/32
Inner tire - 7/32
--------
the fronts i understand are a little lower on the outer due to the turning, but what would you go by?

i'm just debating if i eat the cost and buy a new set in a few months or just replace the fronts.

In 3 places..outer edge, middle and inner edge. In anyone of those 3 areas you hit the 3/32 range you are suppose to change. I live in S.Cali I run my rears to they are almost slicks..
