Tire replacement

So, I just had a Nitto Terra Grappler go bad. The casing is tearing on the inside causing a very large 'tumor' on the tread.

My question is: Do I need four new tires or can I just replace the one? Tires were new with the vehicle and have about 26K on them.

I had one Nitto Terra Grappler go bad (sidewall bulge) and I replaced it; then I had another blowout on the trail and I decided to replace all five tires with a heavier tire - Cooper ST Maxx's. I only had about 15,000 miles on the tires but they were approaching 5 years of age and I just lost confidence in them off road. I now carry a second spare when on a serious off road venture. By the way, I have one Nitto TG left - 285 70 17 - tread is fine. Yours for free if you can get to Thousand Oaks CA!

Thx. If I were anywhere near you, I would take it.

I had a Nitto Terra Grappler go bad on me, bulge on the tread, started had to seperate. Replaced it under warranty, then within 2k miles another went bad, exact same problem. Had zero faith in any of them after that so I replaced all 5. Discount Tire were great, totally understood and warranted all 5 with BFGs. Tires had about 30k on them.
