Yes, unfortunately, replacing the tires won't do anything for the vehicle stability control system.

I'm going to look up some information, to see if it is possible to pull a trouble code without a scan tool

WE can get some flash codes. I will need an email address and I'll send you some pictures if you wish to proceed.

Also, the parts store scanner won't read these codes because the code isn't stored in the engine control module.
