Default 2011 wrx flat tire

One of my tires went flat and is not fixable, it has a crack on the inside, I was wondering if I would need to buy 4 new tires? The tread is good but they have almost 30k miles on them. If I do need to buy some new ones what would be a good set? I'm on the stock dunlaps, and live in California so I dont have to worry about snow. I went down to the tire shop and they want $280 for a new stock tire...

I've never done this, but it's possible to have a new tire shaved to match the tread depth of the old ones.

You'll have to decide whether it makes sense due to the remaining tread life of your original tires.
