Tires

I popped one of my tires on my All-Wheel-Drive! Should I replace all four of my tires?

That all depends on how many odometer miles/how much wear your remaining 4 tires have on them. As with most things automotive, refer to your Owner’s Manual for specific details on the car’s tolerance for mis-matched tires.

How many miles on the tires? You may be able to have one new tire shaved to match the remaining three, or you may need four new tires. I’d consult the owner’s manual on this one.

How much tread is on the remaining tires? What, if anything, does your owner’s manual say about how much the tires have to match?

Unfortuntately the answer is yes with Volvo unless the the remaining three tires are not that worn compared to new.
