The NEW Subaru stance, requires all four tires to have the same degree of wear. There is no allowance for variation, make, model, or size. That stance is fairly definite.

To be safe, I'd replace all 4. It's costly, but the OEM tires on any Subaru leave a lot of the cars performance on the table.

ill take your word for it. the last sentence should be the motivation for the OP anyways.
