How does one know when they need to change the tires on their car?

I heard something about tread and coins?

I would just ask a friend or the service station.

How deep are the threads? There's usually a legal minimum and a recommended figure, here it's 3mm minimum and 5mm recommended.

Stick a quarter in the tread, and if it reaches the queen's head...

... or is it if it passes the caribou's dulap?

What I do is take my car to the local outdoor hockey rink. I start at one end of the rink, floor it, then at centre ice slam on the brakes. If I don't kill the kid in net at the end, then my tires are still good.

When it's spring or winter.
Oh wait, for England: When they go below 5mm (3mm minimum+rain adjustment).

There are wear lines in between the treads on a tire. If the treads are down to the level of the wear line then the tire needs replacing. Also make sure you rotate your tires regularly to avoid uneven wear.

See the horizontal lines in between the tire treads? Those are tire wear lines.

I hear rotating is bad for tyres.
