He has 20 Euro Nokia. So he was certainly not looking at that. OR.... his GPS because he does not have one of those either. I don't even listen to the radio. Because that is in blôody French. LOL.
If the front right is shredded and the other is long past its sell by date they both need to be replaced.
If the back has a bulge (or f**** in mechanical terms) and needs to be replaced then that just leaves one good tyre.
Surely, you would replace them all with the same make.

I think what you are missing is that most people here didn't realise you were driving around with tyres "long past their sell by date", as with two damaged tyres, in normal conditions, one would put the two remaining tyres/wheels on the front and put two new tyres on the rear wheels. (On the basis that most authorities recommend putting the newer set on the rear, as rear grip is more important than front grip).
The fact seems to be that your tyre shop seems to have convinced you that you should have identical tyres on each axle, without considered putting the two good ones together, and on top of that has conned you into buying winter tyres.
It's referred to in the trade (or in mechanical terms if you prefer) as "Bullsh*t baffles brains"
