Flat tire - original tire discontinued, what next?


Jul 6, 2019
Hi there!

I’ve got an AWD M3 with 235/45R18 CrossClimate+ that have a lot of tread left (only 7K miles)

Just got an unrepairable flat on my front passenger side. Michelin discontinued the CC+ for the CC2.

Is it possible to just replace the one tire and perhaps shave it to match the rest? Or should I replace both front tires, or, or, replace all four?

Tires are the most important safety feature, so I don’t plan on skimping. Just curious what makes the most sense. I’m guessing Michelin changed tire material in the CC2, thus causing a different wear pattern from the CC+, making it wear differently. Which is why I’m leaning to replace the front two.
