Good question. All the published advice I've seen (including, I think, my
quattro owner's manual) says all four tires should be the same size and tread
pattern, or ABS and/or quattro may be damaged. So what must one do for a
blowout, buy four new tires?

Most tire stores carry used tires and can tell you on the phone what they
have. In NJ, the going price is $25 mounted, no matter what it is.
