Paved road with nothing slippery on it like snow, sand, gravel etc. = NG for 4WD. Use a lower gear in 2WD and the brakes if needed.

They'll replace 4 tires free if one gets a hole in it? No disrespect intended but I think they lied to you. They'll patch the tire, or replace it, best case they might replace a pair of tires, four...
