Struggling to find P3000

Hi, I need a new front tyre but am struggling to find a Pirelli p3000 to match the other side. Am I ok to mix? If so what with or better buying 2? The good one isn't very old tho so reluctant to waste money. Thanks. 175/65/15 btw

always better to renew two tyres on the same axle rather than just the one ( keep the worn one as a spare if possible )

and never mix brands !!

Thanks. Is there a preferred upgrade from the oem Pirelli at around the same cost or cheaper? It seems 60-70 pound is normal for the size?

You should always take both tyre of same company if mixed it can create problem in your car and many times the car does not ride smooth , so by wasting money many times try to do one tie only.
