Hi , Should you replace just one tyre ? , I have Firehawks , and one was damaged so it was replaced with a bluearth yokohama on the rear.

In an ideal world they should be replaced in axle pairs.

This isn't an ideal world so it'll be fine.

Just bear in mind each side will have marginally different friction levels and characteristics so may lead to interesting handling especially if the old one that is on is getting low on tread.

Try to get the same tire size / model on each axle (front / back).

Also if one tire on axle is below 50% life it might also pull to one side and wear all tires faster than normal
