I ran into a situation kinda like this way back in 1972 at Sears. I had a new Pontiac GranPrix with belted tires that were worn out for some unknown reason at a very low milage(things like this happened frequently to my tires when I was in my teen and post teen years)I went to Sears and wanted to buy two new radial tires,(that was all I could afford at one time) balanced,front end aligned and new tires mounted on the front of the car. They wouldn't sell me two radials and mount them on the front of the car, said the radials were so much better handling tires than the factory bias ply tires, they would tend to make me over steer, and could cause an accident. I agreed with them, told them I couldn't afford to buy more than two tires, so they sold me a whole set on Sears Credit....that was 30 years ago...I wonder if I ever got that set of tires paid for???
