I would have it replaced if it's not going to cost you with the warranty; why not. That should include balancing I would hope.

If you can get it replaced for free why wouldn't u that is a stupid question
Well its not *exactly* free. I think I have to send the old tire back and I still have to get it mounted. So I figure it will cost near $80, give or take a few to get the new one put on.
(current have about 10k on them)

Isn't a nail in a tire exactly the reason why people buy the DTD warranty? If you're not going to use it, then you threw your cash away.

This is why I didn't buy the replacement tickets for my new tires. I'll take my chances.

Is it?
What if tire is 60-80% worn? So going to ride uneven with 1 new tire?
What if his policy has limited number of claims? (I have no idea)

Basically there are factors; hence his reason for asking.
We need more info.

But if his tires are getting worn and he will be buying tires soon and buying the same kind he can use claim for tire which he can put in garage and then patch the hole (easy DIY and kit avail at any auto store). Then when buying tires only need to buy 3.

Road hazard insurance usually covers the repair of the tire. If it can't be repaired, such as a side wall cut, then they replace it. The replacement usually has a prorated amount for mileage. Check the terms of your agreement.

X2 Tire plugs are always in the glovebox and have bailed me out many times. A small 12 volt air pump too, better than jacking up and changing the tire.
