  • When you change one tire, you must change them all: This is something that is recommended by the pros. But realistically, as long as your tires are in good condition and have sufficient tread depth, then you don’t necessarily have to change them all if it’s only one that giving you issues. Just make sure that the new tire is the same model and brand as the others.
