Since your Sub is AWD, all tires should have similar tread depths.

we usually like to do them in pairs~ stick to the size indicated on the door jamb...your insurance company would expect no less~

/\ Good info above. We've run into this many times at my shop. If the other 3 are very close in tread depth, within around 2 or 3/32 of an inch differential, you'll probably be okay. But more than that, and you start stressing components. Especially being a Subaru which is All-Wheel-Drive. On Full-Time AWD/4WD vehicles, we always recommend replacement of all 4.

the top of lincoln's head with a penny (if we've still got these)~ there are also 'wear bars' that appear like little sausages goin' across the tire~
