    How should I go about replacing tires?

    I have a set of 17" wheels with tires but I just pulled them out this spring and one of the tires is destroyed, so I need to replace it, but since the other 3 tires have had 2-3 seasons put on them do I need to replace all 4 or can I still get away with replacing just 2?

    2-3 seasons really means nothing.. It's gonna be about condition/wear/circumference..

    you need 4 tires with exactly the same treadware so you will need 4 new tires or you could have 1 tire shaved down to be the same as the others
