Can bad tires cause computer codes? I just left the shop after a diagnostic test on 2010 Jeep Patriot

The shop could not determine why the ABS and anti skid light keep going on and off. They suggested it is the tires. However, the dash also says I need an oil change which was done three weeks ago and the brakes are not acting right. Now once in a while the pedal kind of shudders when I brake. Any thoughts?

abs is coming on causing shudder in brake pedal. if it is all wheel drive, tires can cause concern especially if it has different tires or tire size. also if 2 new or 2 worn more than other 2.

Have ABS scanned for codes. Most likely a wheel speed sensor intermittently dropping out.
