Default Do all 4 tires need to be the same age/treadwear with quattro?

I'm looking at some used wheels/tires where the deal comes with one brand new tire and "the other 3 tires are excellent. One very good and two look nearly new."

Should I assume that I'll need to buy three new tires to match the one new one? Or is it not as serious as I'm lead to believe and I can skate by on 1 new + 3 used without any damage?

All 4 tires should have the same tread pattern and be within 3% diameter for the Quattro system.
