Default Replace one tire or all four? less than 10k miles

So some nail screwed up my right rear tire. It punctured the tread and went through to the inside sidewall.

Question is, can I get away with replacing the flat or should I really do all four? I know the best answer is to replace all four but now is not the time to spend the money.

Total mileage on this set so far is around 6800 miles. They are Dunlop Direzza Star Spec.

Thanks in advance!

check how much tread is left on your other tires. The textbook answer is if theyre within 1/32" of the depth of a new tire, you can replace just one.

Napa Auto Parts sells a tire tread depth gauage for five bucks.

Tire rack sells a dgitial one. Measure tread depth, then order correct # of tires

I was thinking teh same thing but Im getting the single tire replaced for free because I bought the road hazard coverage from Discount Tire. They don't shave tires. I could order from Tire Rack but there goes the free replacement.

I'll see if I can find a local shop to shave one tire.

I recall the Tirerack guy on here saying the acceptable difference was 2-4/32" I could be wrong though.
