1, I know for an absolute FACT that discount will sell a warranty on tires you dont buy from them.

2. I know for a fact that tires DO have a serial number, and most warranties SHOULD record the serial number. But sometimes they dont.

Play fair, but if they fail to do what they need to, its their problem
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
