Do you still not understand why all 4 tires need to be the same tread depth?

Subaru IS up front about their stance. It's right in the owners manual:

The likelihood of an irreparable flat is fairly slim. In the event that you DO get a flat like that, you'll need to decide if it's worthwhile to replace all 4 tires, or just shave one to match.
