Just wondering if somebody can clear this up I was talking to a lad at work last night and he was telling me that if one tyre is knackered u still have to change all 4 at the same time. Is this true or is he winding me up ?

I suppose it all depends on the condition of the tyres, if you have 1 brand new tyre on and the other 3 only have a few mm left on them, then I would of thought that would affect the handling, especially in the wet.

'Technically' he's right - variations in wheel diameters will fook the diff. But a few mm tread difference will be OK.

As long as the two tyres on either the front or rear axle are almost equal it won't damage nothing. You DO NOT need to replace all 4 tyres at all that is utter bollox. Put the newer tyres on the front for some sideways action balder rear tyres on a Subaru are the best way to learn to drive properly IMO

The old vauxhall 4x4 transfer box used to shit it's self with 2mm tyre difference front to rear, it was a great 4x4 system that lol

The Subaru 4x4 system can handle any tyre wear without a problem.
