Hi y’all. I have one tire that has a blade wedged across the tread and it cannot be repaired. The vehicle has 4,000 miles on it. I ordered 1 tire to replace the busted one. I understand that replacing tires on AWD vehicles can be tricky, but will replacing 1 tire be an issue with the low mileage on remaining 3 tires? Thanks!

You can order a new tire and the install place can shave the tire to match the tread depth of the other three tires. No biggie.

Appreciate the reply. Not sure if Americas Tire Co provides that service but I’ll find out. I’ve read that if the new tire is within 2/32 it is good to go. Anyone on the forum have issues with replacing one tire on an AWD vehicle? Thanks!

No need to shave a tire. Manufacturer tolerances are up to approximately .25" of tread depth difference (about 8/32nds of tread difference).

With only 4000 miles, buy one tire and call it a day (don't bother shaving the tire). Tread depth may only be 1-2/32nds different.

If you are concerned, get a tire tread depth meter (they are cheap) and measure the depth of the current tires against the depth of the new. Look up what Mazda suggests for a max difference and see if you are within that. Likely at 4000 miles you are fine, but I have read that the Goodyears the CX-50 comes with wear fast (many people only get about 20,000 miles out of them).

I doubt there are many people with 20k miles on there cx50s already. And of those that are, they likely aren't very nice on their tires, may not have rotated regularly or are heavy footed drivers.

Not sure what 20,000 mile CX-50’s have to do with anything. I was referring to the stock tire for the 20” wheels, Goodyear Eagle Touring. Look up reviews of them.
