Is it ok to get one new tire? Its a new '05 Outback with around 2300 miles on it.
Also, I was quoted $130 OTD, is that about right for the OEM tires?

As for Sams, I guess its worth a trip to the store...the website didnt have the tire.

Since you are only replacing one I suggest you have the store check the tread depth, and if there is a difference you can have the excess rubber shaved on the new tire.
Another option is trying to sell the three good tires on Ebay, and getting 4 new tires. Not sure how this would work out money wise, but if you want different tires this is an option.

It happened few weeks after I got new Yokohamas for it from the Tirerack.
I've used them for few times, and like the service, I use the shop that is recommended by them, they ship to the shop, I supply the car, and it's done.
Of course you want to make sure that the shop is good.
The only disadvantage is that it usually take few days, up to a week to get this done.
On that occasion I had to get a new tire quickly, and to my surprise - Subaru dealer was the only place around having exactly the same tires in stock, I was prepared to get all 4 replaced, but they measured them,turned out within 1/4'', and I got away with only 1 tire replaced. It did cost a bit more (like 10 or 20 bucks), compared to tirerack, but my wife didn't have to drive in snow storm with the donut....
