Default SOME ASSISTANCE PLEASE...QUICK

I punctured the side wall on my tire today. The other 3 tires still have about 1/2 life still left. May I have some advise on whether it is ok to just replace 1 tire or do I need to put on two? Or do I just replace all 4? Thanks very much for some quick response!

You should replace at least two. And if you have front wheel drive make sure your two best tires are in the front.

Thank you so much for responding! Does it matter with 4 wheel drive?

I'm not sure, but I don't think it would.

On an all wheel drive car like a Subaru, yes it does. All 4 tires have to be within 1/16 of each other or you may void your 60K powertrain warranty. What I did was I bought a new tire and had it shaved to match the others.

15 years in a Subaru dealership, I know the answer to this one.

Because I'm guessing then that if they have to rotate and balance all 4 tires, that will cost alot more???

The last 2 times I've needed tires I bought them from www.tirerack.com . They were shipped to a local garage where I had them put on. I estimated that I saved about $80 on each set of 4 tires I bought.

The customer reviews are very helpful in selecting the right tire for your vehicle.

Thanks very much PN! Right now I'm trying to avoid having to get all 4 new, if possible.
