Getting Tires This Week - Warranty?

Was going to wait a few months but I have a nail in a sidewall. Got me thinking about buying a road hazard warranty. I found out that Fidelity has one. The dealer I bought from never mentioned ANY kind of "extended warranty" to me. I bought Fidelity's 7/70 from another dealer who was cheaper anyway.

So I called Fidelity to get the details. Their warranty covers the wheels and tires, they don't sell just a tire warranty. As long as don't curb them, you should be good. I called a dealer I knew was high, they wanted $600 for 5-years. Is there a deductible? I forgot to ask. Anyway, I'm calling dealers in other states to see how much they want, but did anyone buy this warranty for about $400 or so?

Not too bad, for free. I went to a dealer where I know the people. They weren't much more than Tirerack. The main difference is sales tax. They would be doing the installing regardless. I'll see if the tire manufacturer has any such programs.
