Obviously, no warranty on alignment once you leave dealer lot- next time align will be with a local shop who at least willing to do a road test and correct the issue.
Conti dws are soft on sidewalls and you will def feel the diff in handling compared to RFTs.
Certificates cost 20bucks each tire for 50k miles warranty from discount tires - with free rotation and balancing if you have square setup.
I'm told my staggered setup can be rotated side to side with DWS- not sure if that can be done. I only had them now for 300miles.
FYI... New car has a 2000 mile warranty on the alignment...

Post up the alignment sheet, should be clear what's up...
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
