1) It's explained in the owners manual under tires.

2) In a nutshell, the rolling diameter of a new tire is greater than the rolling diameter of the other 3 worn tires. It will put a bit of stress on the drivetrain/differentials/speed sensors when you have one tire rolling at a different speed than others. Hence, replacing one tire on an AWD car is not a grand idea and with that many miles, one usually needs to replace at least 2 on the same axle, if not 4. Buy 4 new tires and put them on. Sell the 3 used ones in the classifieds for $50/$100 ea to make up for the loss.

4) Or find someone local with the same tire selling used tires around the same mileage and buy one.

3) Because aliens.
