Default New front tire on same axle as a 30k used one?

Got my vehicle back from the body shop.

Have a gs350 Rwd, they replaced the front passenger tire, and left the front driver one alone.

The front driver has close to 30k miles...

should i replace it for even tread wear? Itís starting to show wear as is ... also hear a slight hum/drone at certain speeds

At your discretion relative to the tires expected life and or mileage. I've tended to do pairs so that the wear and general performance is going to be similar. On cars that have a full sized spare that is my consideration if I don't want to have the older tire tossed and still has better tread than a well aged potentially dried out spare.
