Replace 1 rear tire, throw out front end?

In Milwaukee we had a bulge on the drivers inside rear tire. This was replaced by mobile service (who charged our credit card $200 more than was quoted.) Now (in Utah) we have to replace both front tires as the inside edges are worn to see cabling. All was fine before the repair. The pulling began after the repair and it took too long to figure out why....
Can the rear tire fix be the cause of the shredded front tires?
Thanks... Tina

CC extra $200 can be denied with your CC Co.
Unless you signed for the charge and the amount is on your receipt.

Rear tire change has nothing to do with your front tires.
Since both are wearing the same a alignment is required.

Agree. The rear tire issue/replacement is unrelated to the worn front tires. Something is amiss - front end alignment, component, etc.
