Question Destroyed my passenger rear suspension etc.

About a month ago, I was in an accident and destroyed my BBS wheel tire, Brembo caliper, rotor, control arms, shock & spring etc. Now I am finally getting my car back after a month, hard to find OEM parts for MR in the states, I was curious since one side is going to have brand new tire and the other side used, is that going to effect anything? Some people tells me that it could mess up my rear diff, is that true? Any input will be great Thanks.

Have you had the frame measured to make sure none if the mounts got tweaked? I've seen that happen to a lot of cars.

IIRC, there was a thread somewhere where someone said Mitsu told them if the tread is within 3/32 difference it'd be fine. Personally I think that's too much of a difference. You can also get the new tire (or a used one) shaved down to the same depth.

A new set of tyres sounds like pocket change to the costs already.

Reward yourself.

I would tell insurance or whoever you need a new tire on the other side. Better safe than sorry

If you need 1 tire you should buy 4

His point is valid. IF you have two new tires with two old one, you could end up with the same issue front to rear or when it comes time to rotate. That said, as long as they are within spec, you should be fine.

Is anybody reading? First of all why would I have two new tires if my insurance replaced the damaged one? You want me to replace three other tires that are fine out of my pocket? Does that make sense to you? If you are not going to read please do not reply thanks.

If one tire is new and the others are used there is going to be a difference in diameter. If that difference is to much I will put alot of stress on your drivetrain. Everyone who posted in this thread did read your post and their trying to help, so stop being a dick.
