    Quick opinions on my current tire and sin situation... Wwyd

    OK I have a basically new 2019 impreza hatchback. I bought 3 rims and tires from a Subaru group on fb, the guy said less then 1k miles on them. The tires look great and I brought them to my buddy who works at Costco tire shop and he said they look great also.

    Here's the dilemma: I ordered a new matching rim and tire. My car is awd and I know you aren't supposed to mix up used/new tires. Should I put the used ones on with the new one and save myself 500+ dollars not buying 3 more new tires to match, or should I not take any chances and just buy the tires.

    Anyone have any personal experience? Wwyd? Half the tire guys were like nah get new ones.. The other half said **** it just throw them on... Not sure what to do




    Edit: idk how to fix the title obviously it should say rim and not sin.
    Yes... come and let us make an end of it. It matters not, even cornered, to my last breath... I remain who and what I am. I will not hide, nor tremble, nor beg. Let them come and reckon with fury that is DOOM defiant.

    tbh i never would've bought 3 tires to begin with because of this exact scenario

    under 1k? for sure? i would just roll them all and add the new one. F it.

    too bad there doesn't exist a forum for each different car model where people that own that exact model ask and answer questions about the vehicle they own.

    anyway if the difference is within 2/32" it's fine

    I mean yeah I could have registered on the impreza forums and made a post but here I am on another forum in the automotive section. I don't think it's impreza specific, it's more of general question for anyone who's had an awd vehicle.

    I only have the tires bc he was selling rims and tires for 250. They were already mounted. I just wanted the rims. The rims are mostly fine aside from one thats been smacked a bit. So even if I toss the tires it was still worth it for the rims alone.

    AWD you want them to match as close as possible. 2/32nds tread difference between them max. If you don't you are putting strain on your differential/transfer and it might not show up right away except some quirky handling, but eventually it will start to make noise and start having problems.

    Tires are cheap your vehicles AWD/TRANSMISSION is not cheap. Get some New Bridgestone at discounttiredirect take advantage of coupons and rebates + Rakuten

    Sell the mismatched tires

    besides, your ringlands are probably going to fail before the differential so it's fine

    I ended up taking the rims to a rim repair shop. Guess what... All bent! I'm having them fixed and resurfaced/powder coated. He measured the tires they are fine. Should have em on sometime next week.
