Single tire? I'd recommend getting one that's an absolute EXACT match across opposite ends of the same axle. Or buy 2 new tires because the other one will have some treadwear.

thank you, but i'm aware that any tread weardifference is minimal. so minimal that if i got a new exact tire as the ones i currently have, the tread wear between the new (exact) and the old (exact) models will still wear differently. so its doesn't matter to me, i was just wondering the difference between the 2 models

Belt construction is probably a bit different due to the speed rating. Rubber compound might be different too, resulting in the tire wearing down at a much different rate.

Is the flat not repairable?
If there is a hole in the tire you can have it patched for dirt cheap. As long as the hole is not in the side wall...

Poked a hole in the sidewall, that would not have been repairable.

So for $12 you got road-hazard replacement? It's not a scam, really; it's just kinda like an insurance policy. Over many years, I've had to repair/replace so few tires that I usually decline that. Still, that's over the long haul, and I have to be financially capable of replacing a tire (or a set) at any unpredictable time. If you don't carry enough money in the bank to do that, then it CAN be a good idea to get that coverage.
