I think you were treated to a bait and switch sales tactic.

You usually can avoid this problem with regular tire rotations. Once a year. Every 20K miles or so.

They have been making this sales pitch ever since radial tires replaced the old bias belted tires. But then what happens if you have a spare tire in the trunk and need to use it.

I suspect its mostly sales pitch for most careful drivers. Maybe a concern at high speed or on difficult terrain.
