Some places can shave tires so you only have to buy one and they still match. I always had a problem taking a perfectly good tire and grinding the tread off, but I guess you are doing the same thing by tossing a perfectly good partially worn tire on the other side of the damaged one.

I think Tire Rack even offers shaving.

Just another option if you hadn't considered it.

Another option is to call around to all the used tire places in town for a similar worn tire of the same brand and size. I did that years ago with one vehicle.
