    I just hit a rock and blew out the sidewall on one of my tires. I have a legacy XT. The problem is the following… the car has a Yokohama tire... 225/50 r18 - 95V spec. Its an Avid GT. I can't find that model anywhere. I can find an Avd Ascent GT, which is the exact same tire but it has a different tread.

    Can I use that tire? I have no desire to replace all 4 tires. All 4 tires were pretty new, they have less than 15000 miles on them. Now I have to replace one of them in the front. Does the fact that one Yokohama tread is a little different than the other one make that big of a difference? All other specs of course would be the same.
