    New to the Club, gotta question bout my WRX

    So I just noticed my front right Tire is pretty low on tread, but all the other tires still got plenty of tread, this worries me because I replaced the tires about a year ago and I got a flat on the front right tire after hitting a large pothole. Becasue of the AWD I had to replace all 4 tires and I really do not want to do that again, I Know it could be alignment Or I need a tire rotation but im not sure if its to late or not for anything to fix it. Everything else in this 02 WRX works great its always the tires that stress me out hah. Any help would be good, thanks.

    How much difference is there between the tread depths? It would really concern me if one tire was wearing much more quickly than the others. Is it uniformly worn lower, or is it one edge of it that's worn more?

    Hey thanks for replying, The tread Difference is only on the outside edge of the tire.

    You probably need an alignment.
    Life is like riding a bicycle in order to keep your balance you must keep moving.

    Yes definitely. If it's just the outside edge, then you should be fine since the rolling diameter should be in line with the other tires after the alignment.
