I don't know. I didn't attempt anything. I bought a set of tires and then went to Discount Tire to buy their hazard warranty. Then I replaced the tires, and when I had a blowout on two of the tires), I would back to Discount Tire to buy new ones only to be surprised when they said I have hazard insurance and that covered it. I asked how they register the warranty and was told they just use the VIN.
