    Different amount of rear tire wear a bad thing?

    Hi,

    This might be a stupid question, but I'm not sure so I thought I'd ask.

    A couple of months ago some a$$hole slashed one of my rear tires (315 35ZR17)), and since it was an odd size it took me this long to get a new one, I finally got it in the mail today!! I didn't think I had that much wear on my old tires but now that I have a new one my old one looks to be about 1/2 worn. So will this be bad for the rear end if I put just 1 new tire on the back with the other rear half worn?

    If so, what I can do about this? (Besides another new tire, I don't have an extra 500 bones right now.)

    They will be fine, its probably only a difference of 4-5 32nds of an inch. No harm will be done!

    It is a goodyear Eagle F1 D3. I got it from tire rack, and by the time it got up here to Canada it was just over 400 (can't remember exactly). To buy one locally in Calgary from a shop is close to 500.
