A decent tyre will be one that matches the other 3 you already have.

Wait, do you want a new rim or just a tyre?
What Rossco's saying is that to remain legal, your tyres (both front and both back) must match. So at a minimum you need to buy 2 tyres.

much match?

I thought the law was both front and both rear must match. For example you can have one brand of matching tyres on the front and one brand of matching tyres on the rear.

Hah! Fixed typo 1 minute before your post :P

Yep, that's what i was trying to say. Fronts must match, and rears must match, but fronts don't need to match rears, and vice versa.

Hitting the curb, and the tyre blew, I would have expected rim damage before puncturing a tyre.

Did you buckle a rim, or did the tyre go bang, and when you looked at it, it was flat?

If the rim is fine, you may just need to visit a servo, and use their air to put the tyre bead back on and pump up the tyre.
