No this is a different dealer. This particular dealer is closer to where I work so I usually go here, but I prefer my other dealer.
When I had my other tire replaced on the road trip the SA did say that the warranty company is cracking down so they needed pics and they had to sign off on it before any work could be done. But this was a blatant result of hitting the pothole and it is compromising the safety of the tire! I can't believe he just passed it off like that.
