Default shave a tire?

well about a week or two ago i posted a thread about getting a cut in my sidewall. tech said it would be ok but i decided to get a new one. which showed up today.

my question is whether i need to get it shaved or if it will be close enough to not worry about. old tire tread measured in at 8/32nds down the center. new tire measures in at 10/32nds. so what do you think?

from tirerack.com:
Subaru Within 1/4-inch of tire circumference or about 2/32-inch of each other in remaining tread depth.

If your measurement is accurate, I wouldn't have the new one shaved. If it really might be more like 6/32s and you pushed the probe in too deep or only measured in one spot, I'd shave the new one. Measure in several places across the tread.
