  1. Hi - don't know how much to be honest. You could look at it like you'd be getting 4 good rims at less than half retail plus a brand new tire which cost $150. Buy one more matching tire to go opposite the new one and keep the two best others. I should think you'd be in good shape, but if you're not interested no worries....

    Honestly, I don't like the fact that the tires have all different tread depth and how much would it be to get the new tire installed and balanced?
