Bottom line is, I buy tires every other year. And then there is the odd year when the Tribeca needs tires as well; 2020 looks like that kind of year.

Note that the Tribeca has 40,000 mile life high performance street tires installed in Spring 2015 whereas the 4Runner has 55,000 mile AT tires installed Spring 2018. They will be out at the same time (of course the 4Runner also sees twice the mileage of the Tribeca, so there is that).

By definition, high performance street tires have much longer life per 1/32 of tread because they are hard and they start at much less, like 9 or 10/32 vs 13/32 for P-metric AT and 15-17/32 for LT metric AT in the sizes in question.
