Tires & Speed Rating

I have michelin harmony tires on with an "S" speed rating. I went to buy a replacement, and the tire dealer only had an T or V rated tire in that model. He said I should not buy that one b/c it was bad to have a different speed rating on one tire versus the other 3, in terms of traction in rain/snow.

Is this true, or is he just trying to get me to buy 4 tires instead of 1?????
