Question about 2008 BMW 1 Series
I would think it's a break pad problem, perhaps dusty and near end of life. Check the thickness by removing the front wheel and looking at the pads, should be 3mm or more in thickness(not counting the metal backplate) any less then change as soon as possible.I can't see how they can suggest tyres as that would be very obvious as you would be skidding everywere.Personally I would be thinking about taking to a goverment testing station with a view to either getting the old tyres put back with a refund or getting trading standards to look into the dealership for bad practices. But that's up to you.

With ignition on, turn on wiper switch. When wiper arm gets to point where blade does not touch screen, turn off ignition switch so that wipers do not return to park position. It may take a few goes to stop arm in the right position so repeat process until it is in the best position.
Check main wiper arm and bend slightly towards windscreen so that blade touches screen and there is some spring pressure from the arm to keep blade on screen. Also check that there is no interference between main arm and the section which supports the rubber blade. If you get blade chatter as the arm sweeps, twist the end of the main arm slightly in the opposite direction to the movement that produces the chatter. It may take a bit of trial and error to get it all right.
