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
