You meant your tires had wires sticking out right? Yea that means your tires are long overdue to be changed. All the tread are gone and you should change them asap. After you lower the car, it's recommended to align it.

No daubt. I wouldn't even drive on them at all unless you have to - to go get new tires. All tires showing metal? How many miles are on them and what kind of tires? Same spot on all four? If your car lowered at all now or ever been with the suspension?
