Nope, that won't work. Tires have SERIAL numbers on them...(all tires) and Discount tire knows which ones came from them vs. someone else & will reject any claim that they review. They DO also register your VIN but I think that is only secondary. Play fair or don't play at all. I have not yet heard of anyone being prosecuted for theft but in theory, they could press charges if someone "attempted" such a fraud.
