I've heard this 'law' too. I never really thought about it before but it does sound very like a tire shop inspired idea.

[semi related story] The first time I ever needed a tire patched, they had to take the tire off because I had somehow managed to get a nail like this in my tire head first.

All the guys from the back came out front to ask how I'd managed that (no idea) and to see who was brave enough to drive that car with those brakes. The manager said he'd do a free inspection on the brakes for me but he was afraid that if he touched them they'd fall apart and then I couldn't drive home. I sooo do not miss being 18.
