You should replace them in pairs to make sure the opposite tire is even in terms of wear. But if the older opposite tire isn’t very worn then it shouldn’t be a problem. Some tire shops will shave the tire down to match the others.

On a 18 CRV, is it necessary to replace all four tires if only one is bad?
The answer is.. "it depends"

Mostly It depends on the remaining tread life on the remaining tires.

If they are essentially "like new" tread wise (>75% tread remaining) .. then only replace the bad tire. The key here however is that you must replace the tire with the same exact brand and model. If not.. then you need to replace the pair on that axle. Generally speaking.. it is always best to stick with the same tire brand and model unless you are replacing all 4 tires... as this best mitigates any issues down the road with traction control and safety systems.

IF you have less than 75% treadwear remaining on the other tires, then a single replacement may be problematic and will require replacing a pair on the same axle.

The advice about tyre replacements in the posts above is correct "in theory" however in the real world replacing one tyre is not a problem.
Who in their right mind is going to replace 2, 3 or 4 tyres just because 1 has a puncture ?
I would buy 1 tyre of same or similar make and speed rating and have the tyre fitter swap wheels around so best matching pair is on the front.
