On that note, anyone think I have to worry about alignment or other problems with 3 of my 4 tires having 2k miles on them? The new one will be going up front, thoughts?
Also, here's the warranty pulled from a Lexus Dealership in the U.S.
Original equipment tires damaged by road hazards are covered under the Tire Road Hazard Protection warranty. This coverage is provided for a period of 36 months or 50,000 km or until the tire treadwear indicator becomes visible, whichever occurs first. The warranty applies to direct expenses incurred to repair or replace original equipment tires. Coverage is provided in respect to parts, labour, installation, balancing, and the applicable taxes. Your Lexus dealer will make the appropriate repair and claim.

Here in Mission Viejo California the dealership advised there is no warranty on tires period.
In my case my tires had a blow out at just under 6,000 miles.
I called service at my dealership to ask about the tire warranty. At first they said bring the car in they'll look at it.
After a couple of hours they told me they do not warranty tires past driving off the lot, you can pay $385 plus installation and they want to have you balance your tires again for an additional fee.
Thankfully I looked at the tired called Bridgestone who makes the tire, they had me to go into an authorized Bridgestone dealer and have them inspect the tire.
In this instance given the car has so little mileage, they sold me a replacement tire for 1/2 price.
Their price was $265 for the same tire of course.
The dealership even went so far as to suggest it was my fault the tire blew out, (it caused a little damage to the back fender and firewall of the car when the tire blew off).
