If you look at the question marked as a duplicate, you'll see a situation that is very similar to your own. Summary: you want matching tires but it's your car and your responsibility to make an informed decision.

comment Why do tyres go flat after a few weeks of non-usage?
Adding a little flavor to this answer: I just took my summer tires down off the rack after a while winter. All of them were still close to operating pressure (lost maybe 2 psi over three months).

comment Does increasing head gasket thickness make it more failure-prone?
Intuitively it makes sense. There's more non-metal exposed to pressure. Whether that is the proximate cause is ... uh ... your original question. ;-)

comment I have a 1996 Mercedes e320 I constantly have to put coolant in the reservoir coolant levels always low
How does the exhaust smell? Is there a sweet smell? After a drive, lift the hood and smell and listen. Any hissing? Smell anything? Sometimes you can track coolant problems down with your nose.
