Complaint - Tires

MY MECHANIC NOTICED TIRE WARE DEFECTIVE. HE SHOWED ME WHERE THE SIDE WALLS HAD A SLICE GOING AROUND THE OUTER TIRE TOWARD THE TREAD SIDE OF THE SIDE WALL. THE TWO FRONT TIRES (FIRESTONE AFFINITY TOURING) HAD A SIGNIFICANT SLICE, AS IF THE TIRE WOULD SPLIT AND THE TWO BACK TIRES WERE SHOWING SIGNS OF DOING THE SAME THING ONLY NOT AS BAD YET. HE RECOMMENDED I GO BACK TO PLACE OF PURCHASE AND INQUIRE ABOUT THESE TIRES BEING DEFECTIVE. THIS WAS AUGUST, 26, 2011. FIRESTONE TOOK OFF THE TWO FRONT TIRES AND SOLD ME 2 NEW TIRES (FR710) , SAYING THE BACK TWO (AFFIINITY TOURING) WEREN'T BAD ENOUGH TO USE WARRANTY. HOWEVER, IF I CAN IN THE VERY NEXT WEEK, WHICH WAS A NEW MONTH, HE COULD HELP ME WITH MY BACK TWO TIRES. MY TIME WAS LIMITED AND I DID NOT GET MY CAR IN UNTIL 2 MONTHS LATER. NOW FIRESTONE WON'T HONOR REPLACING THE BACK TIRES. THE SLICE IS STILL THERE AND MY CONCERN IS IF THE TIRES ARE DEFECTIVE, AM I SAFE DRIVING AROUND ON THEM? THE TWO FRONT WERE APPARENTLY BAD ENOUGH TO REPLACE.
