Tilling "bare spots" 4-6 inches deep... Just how much lawn area are you redoing??? When you till you are doing large areas and are nowin the world of complete renovations... I would not do complete renovation now unless you're confident you can get the seed up AND established before Summer heat comes in...

Exact, makes a good point about looking at the soil profile and knowing what you have before doing renovations... Sand/Clay, dark/light, crumbly/compact, etc., etc.
Knowing the physical structure of the soil is important to managing it at all... in fact it is very likely to tell you why you have bare spots in the first place...
