Default Uneven wear: Keep them or trash them?

Alignment went and on 2 of my tires, the 2" of tread on the inside of each tire is almost worn away, but they have 6/32" to 7/32" of tread overall

They are 205/55/16 Potenza RE050A Pole Position. Going to replace them w/ the same tire (10/32" tread depth) since the remaining two have 8/32" left...

But what to do with the toasted two? Give them away to someone who wants to flog them on a track for a night? Keep them as temporary spares in case of a nail or puncture? Dispose of them so that people can't use them?

I'll try to post a pic in a moment.
Just looking for some constructive advice.

Yessir, got a great one w/ a printout and 0 toe when my winter tires went on.

Gonna get another very soon, when I get my 2 new tires and the summers go on.

My question's about the two essentially toasted ones, are they no good for anything?

if someone wanted to beat them up on a track until they pop....dont think it would matter.....otherwise.....one for an emergency spare would be ok I suppose

I'm having -almost- the same prob, except mine are wearing on the inside AND outside. Were they under inflated? The pressure is good as of yesterday. I wanna say that when I got my safety inspect to bring the car into VA, they weren't right. I don't recall whether over or under.
