I have a 1999 Ford E150 van with iffy tires. I want to get some snow tires but the variables are driving me nuts. [more inside]

I've got to replace my front tires, so I have some dumb tire shop questions. [more inside]
I got a flat tire last night. I had been planning on getting two new tires and moving the front two to the back anyhow because they needed to be replaced, so this was no big deal (the flat ended up being one of the back tires, luckily). When I went to get them replaced, the tire guy told me that moving the front tires to the back was the "old school" way of replacing them, and that putting the new ones on the back would be better because they would ground the car and prevent spin-outs. Does anyone know if he is full of crap or if this is the truth? My dad was the one who suggested moving the fronts to the back...and I guess my dad is pretty "old school"...but I'm still wondering which way is better?
