damage to side wall means changing tire, since your awd depending how new the other tires are. you either have to replace them all or have them do something to the new tire to have the same tread depth as the others.

Yeah that should be replaced.

As mentioned depending on the wear on the tires, may mean 4 new tires.

You don't have to buy expensive brand tires, but also do not buy cheap unknown brand. The car will shake and wobble and make all kinds of noise at high speed.

Yeah, I would replace it. If you want to go cheap check in the for-sale forum. Someone local to you might be selling their factory tires.

Also some tire stores carry used tires and while not ideal, if you want to go cheap until your other 3 tires wear out, you can run used as long as the size is correct. GL

Can't go wrong with falkens. They are good tires. But like jerseyman10 said, try tire discount first. They carry quality tires at a rate that is unbeatable. Sometimes you can find better deals there than ebay.

+1. Ran Falkens on my truck for years. Some styles do NOT like snow though.
