One bad tire, should I replace them all?

I have the S-03's with 13k on them. One of them must of got low in the rear and wore funny. Now it's pratically to the bars on the outside of the tire. Should I just replace the one with another S-03 or replace all 4 with some other brand of tire?

That really comes down to money and current performance of the remaining tires. If you only have a few months left on the others, replace them all. If you can go another 40K, then just replace the one. If you don't like the s-03 performance, then replace them all and keep them as spares.

It's not asking a lot for a tire to go 50K. Performance tire maybe so. Point is, it's a judgement call. Put it in %. If the remaining have about 85% left or better, only get one. If they're near their end, then replace them all. If you only replace one, you want your next replacement to be all four. You don't want to stay staggered on a 3-1 routine.

Most tires come with a 30-60K warranty, better ones coming with 60K. Performance tires often do not last very long at all, because to be sticky, the compound is relatively soft making it wear much easier. Harder tires last longer, but don't handle all that well. But, even for a performance tire, I would expect at least 30K, and would dissappointed otherwise. Even these crappy turanza's have lasted about 30K for me, and have plenty left. I'm replacing them soon, only to improve the ride and handling, not because of wear.

Are you sure it's just the tire? Wear in one spot (outside, middle, inner) could be caused by suspension issues too, ie. camber and alignment. You may also want to check with the dealer about getting a new one under warranty, it'll be pro-rated, but at least you can change 'em all together later.
