Default tire tread depth difference

I have a 2010 equinox. I just noticed that one tires tread is 1/16" different that the other 3 . Is this going to screw up anything. Do I need new tires or this much difference OK?

Is your vehicle a awd model?

If not, I would say it's not a problem. It also might mean that you drive and that particular tire might have been under inflated.

Agreed. As long as your not below your treadlife indicator you don't need to get new tires.

It is AWD. Should I be worried?

It is not big of a deal. Just remember that with AWD you will want to replace ALL 4 tires when the time comes.
