You will need to replace the tire with the same size tire. It should be the same brand as the other tires. I suggest that if your other tires are marginal, replace all four tires. You do want to keep the circumference of each tire the same. Hope this helps.

Check AWD system appeared after a flat tire on 2011 Lexus IS 250. Also, when the error shows up my air conditioning shuts itself down and is not cooling anymore. What is happening?

That hard of an impact caused damage to the sensors for the antislip and brake system. Make an insurance claim because this needs to go to a dealer and could be expensive to fix.

If one tire is damaged do you need to replace all four tires on an AWD.

Not really.
While it is recommended by most auto makers and tire companies to replace tires in sets of 2 or 4 it is not a requirement.
As long as the tires are all the same size and style, you should be ok with replacing just one.

After involvement in an accident the rear tire is now at a 90 degree angle. a neighbor told me about adjusting the rear stabilizer bar, how is this accomplished?

If the wheel is that far out of place then it's way beyond being adjusted back into place.

The available adjustments have a range of just a few millimetres. Something has been severely damaged and requires repair or replacement; but without a physical examination of your vehicle the fault is impossible to accurately diagnose.

Note that an impact that severe may also have bent the bodyshell attachment points, so even if there are some obviously damaged parts the vehicle will need to go to a bodyshop to have the shell alignment checked. It's best to do that before paying to have the car repaired, as the results may mean that the vehicle is far beyond economic repair and will never be roadworthy again.

Replaced 2 tires and now have noise in drive train. could this be because of the 2 new tires being slightly larger than the worn tires and is throwing off the A4wd

If you have an auto-4wd or AWD transfer case in your SUV, you NEED to have the same size tires all around. Half of your truck is trying to drive at a slightly different speed than the other half. Your tires are going to wear out 10x faster than normal, and it's VERY possible that your transfer case or differentials will be damaged and leave you on the side of the road. I would recommend having it towed on a flatbed to get the correct tires.

I have a rotational judder through one of the front wheels i believe. I can feel it through the steering wheel also and sometimes the steering wheel moves slightly by itself. when speed increases so does...

Jack up the front of the car and spin the wheels by hand. Try to look for a point behind the wheel and see how the tire runs, if you see it go up and down, you have deformed tires and you will have to change them. Also look at the inside of the tire for hernias (lumps) on the side wall of tire, if so, change the front tires. Do this check on the rear tires also. Have a nice day!
