Hello
I had a nail in one tire
Brought to get plugged, the Subaru dealership told me it had micro fractures and needed a new one
I have 7000 on the tires

Do I have to change them all? I have to measure my other ones?
7000 doesn't seem much for 4 new ones
And I didn't see micro cracks

Any thoughts.

Thanks

You need four tires of the same exact size. Owner's manual lists exact specs but for most years, the deal is maximum 1/4" difference in circumference from the smallest to the largest.

7000 miles may or may not be enough wear to get you 1/4" off from your most worn tire to a brand new tire. Keep in mind: circumference. It does not take much visible difference in tread to add up to 1/4".

Time for the measuring tape.

Also some shops have the ability to shave a tire- as in get a brand new one and shave a portion of the tread off to match the other 3. It's not the most common service, but usually there's one tire shop near everyone who is set up to do it.
