    Default changing tyres in pairs? or can i just change one?

    hey guys. had a small oopsie today. hit a kerb and blown the passenger front tyre. So im in the market for a new tyre. Should i change both the fronts? or just the one?

    as an aside, i discovered that my car instead of having a space saver tyre, my car had a random tyre that would not fit. lucky this happened when it was just me, and not my wife and baby in the car. phoned the dealer and they are going to get me a space saver.

    Luckily a rather nice chap in a nice vectra sri, turned up and lent me his space saver. If your a member: thanks bob, i will get it back to you!!

    What is the condition of the other side tyre? If it's well worn then it would probably be better to get a pair - may even get a bit of a discount....

    If it's in good shape, with plenty of tread then there is no need to replace it. Replacing one tyre is fine.

    What is the make and model of the tyre?

    My understanding is the only time that you must change both tyres on the same axle is with a 4x4 to prevent differential wind due to differing tyre circumferences. 2wheel drive is fine, unless as Ste says the other tyre is well worn
