Maybe you need to be more specific.
You may be saying that 3 tires are the same make, and the 4th. is different,
or, as most people seem to be interpreting, it has 2 different brands (2 of one, 2 of the other),
and they have been split up side-to-side rather than the more expected front-to-back.

In either case, it suggests that someone has deemed it not important to have 4 matching tires.
I would infer from that the vehicle has not had the best of care in other ways, and pass on it.

Even on a 2WD vehicle, it makes good sense to have 4 matching tires.
