Default Help plz: can somone w/new STi do penny test?

I had a flat after a road rally the other day and need a baseline to decide if I can buy just 1 tire or if I have to buy 4.

I dont know anyone with a new STi so i'm turning to my peers on here. If you have an STi with not many miles on it (<500-1000) can you please do the penny test and tell me how it measures up?

I really appretiate it

replace one could mean replacing a diff

better look into this more carefully.

so it'd make more sense to at least buy 2 for the other side? i'm really thinking i'm going that route... but i'd like to hear other opinions...

thanks Bundyboyz...

I'm not sure I buy that. How often are you driving in a perfectly straight line? Hardly ever. The diff is pretty much working 95% of the time anyway. If you went new with 3 bald maybe, but I can't understand why somethingclose would be so horrible.

Can anyone enlighten me? Seriously, how often are we driving dead staight? Not to mention bumps, etc. that cause one tire to roll slightly farther than another...
