Is he serious?! I am going to take it to another dealership to get it replaced I guess. I hit a road hazard which damaged my tire, making it unsafe to drive on. That is the whole reason to get the warranty. Why on earth would that not be covered?

Makes me think the SA is a complete moron.
I had a bubble that was pretty hard to notice, and the dealer replaced the tire under the tire and wheel insurance program no questions ask. Did you get the car and the tire and wheel insurance from the same dealer?
