It is allways recommended to change tires as a set on all wheel drive vehicles.
Difference in rolling diameter (even same size but new vs. 1/2 worn) puts added stress on the drivetrain, mainly the transfer case. It can also (sometimes but somewhat rarely) cause a.b.s. Malfunctions due to a difference in rotating speed.
Back to the repair.
A proper tire puncture repair (patch plug combination) should last the life of the tire.
What is your concern with the puncture?
