Not to be a cynic, but you were honest.... he wasn't.
He sold you the tire at 50%... and submitted the cut tire to BFG or Discount's warranty underwriter.

You did the right thing, and he made $100 pure profit

Maybe a little too honest . I would have most likely rode out the warranty .

I just recently sold a client a $600 chlorine generator for his pool . One month later a valve either failed or was turned the wrong way . Generator was toast . I was able to get the generator warrantied even though it was most likely 85% operator error .
