Question Countryman awd question

Thinking about buying my sister's countryman awd. The car came with and still has the upgraded 19" wheels on it. She hit a pot hole a few weeks back and blew a tire. She had it towed to the dealer and had to replace all 4 tires. Even though the other 3 were good. That cost her $1400. Two weeks later it happened again. Luckily her and her husband got the roadside hazard on the tires. This time they only replaced one tire. My question is do you have to change the other tires if this happens or is it hype from the dealer to make more money. This has me really rethinking about buying the car. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks
Newbie

Yeah, that sounds fishy to me. Did they give a reason for replacing the other undamaged rims?

Something to do with the weight of the other tires compared to the new one. It might mess up the awd or some line like that.
