I picked up a screw near the edge of a front tire with about 4,500 miles on it. The tire dealer said that it was too close to the side to patch and I'd need to replace the tire. I'm OK with that, but think it can be patched and maybe used as a spare?

It the course of the conversation, he also said that if the tread was down about 50% I should replace the other three. It would be unsafe to have one new tire and 3 with worn treads, since it was an all wheel drive vehicle. I would probably do that anyway, but this was the first time I had heard that.

+1, recommend that you get an independent tire shop's opinion of wear and alignment.

Something doesn't sound right (with your car or the dealer).

Please let us know what you find out.

I believe his guy is saying that if the tires were at 50% wear then replace all four. I'd do the math and probably replace all 4 at like 75% or more.
