Default single tyre change for petra

guys ,

the right front tyre on my petra scraped against a sharp rock and has got torn.i need to replace the tyre.

1) is it ok to just change one front tyre and keep the other stock one or do i have to change both of them?

2) if it is ok to change just one then can i opt for a tubeless one? all the existing tyres are tube type though.

3) the tyres are 31000 kms old.how much more can they run?

4) do i change both front tyres to tube less?

plz advice fellas

Use only evenly worn tyres in an axle. especially the driven axle.
So, take two evenly worn tyres from your car and mount them in the front. The new tyre can go to the rear .
