Default New Continental Extreme DW with a flat :(

Hey guys, wasn't sure where else to post this.

Last year I purchased the Continental Extreme Contact DW summer tires. Had them mounted on my Enkei Raijin rims. Fast forward a year later and I received a flat on a sidewall. This tires have around 3k miles of very light driving. Do I need to purchase all four new tires or am I at the point they are new enough to just replace the flat tire? Thanks for the help!

Don't Continentals come with some sort of warranty? I'd check on that before I drop any more money on replacements. I know my last set of DWS did.

Look at their website and scroll down to the warranty section

Check how many x/32 it measures compared to the others. If it's 1 or 2, you should be fine with just replacing the bad one.

if the new tire needs to be shaved to match the other tires we can do that as well

Damni it man! I just bought 4 new tires after having a catastrophic blowout on one of mine.

Had no Idea you could shave a tire.
