Default Changing 4 tires?

My 2019 Impreza Hatchback damaged one of the tires, now, do i need to change all 4 tires when the other 3 has only 3,000 miles on it?

I just changed 4 tires about 6 mos ago only.

I think your allowed 2/32 if you buy the exact same tire. Some shops/tirerack can shaved the new tire to match the others.

you absolutely dont need to replace all 4 tires. get a tire gauge, measure the depth in tread of the 3 good ones and then go to tire rack and buy ONE new tire of the same brand and model as the other 3 and have them shave it down to the same depth. I did it with a continental DWS when one went flat, had tire rack shave down a new one, and it matched the others perfectly. Tires have the best grip when they are worn down 3-4/32 anyway.

if the others have 3000 miles on them you don't need to do anything, replace the one.
If there was meaningful wear in 3000 miles we'd all need new tires every 10k

I'd like to know how the Impreza damaged the tire and not the driver?

Like others have already said, replace the one unless there is other damage to the others tires you haven't mentioned.

I hit a curb, it didn't go flat then but had sliced off the tire wall.

You don’t need to RR all 4 tires

Now if 3 are have more than 1/2 tread worn out then yes

Engineers purposely put ‘a range’ built into the transmission/differential
If they didn’t......what would happen if you put your spare on and drove 200miles to a town?
Manufacturers would be buying Transmissions left and right.

I had denied several “AWD Expert Customers “ for wanting 4 new tires went one was damaged. Whether it be Ford/Audi/Subaru/etc
All manufacturers have a tolerance (it’s quite large in fact) for tire circumference
Hell I had some guy said needs 4new tires and he had 3different sizes on his POS
