Did you check out the Tire Warranty on the DVD in your glove box? The GY LS2's come with a factory (i.e. "free") road hazard warranty. With only 5,000 miles on the tires, GY should have reimbursed you for +/- 75% of the tire cost, plus paid for the mounting, balancing, TPMS rebuild and maybe the alignment.

Sounds like not reading the warranty cost you +/- $350.
When the LS2's were out of stock for the F10's, GY went so far as to replace ALL FOUR TIRES on some owners cars with competitors tires. (I was secretly hoping our F10 would get a flat, so that GY would buy me a set of decent tires from a competitor).
