Discount Tires Warranty, is it worth it when buying new tires?

It was disappointing to find out that the sidewall puncture is not repairable on one of my General Altimax RT43’s. I picked up a sheet metal screw while in South Dakota last month. It has a slow leak and loses about 1psi per day. I think I could have got another 15k miles out of them otherwise. I am having a set of 235/60/R18 Michelin Defender T+H installed this week and decided to up the aspect ratio +1 since I have a 2” lift installed and do road trips and camping in national forests. Discount Tires will be doing the install and they offer a “Warranty Certificate” for $30+ per tire which lasts for 3 years. The warranty will replace a damaged tire no questions asked.

I was wondering if you guys think that is a good idea to have or if most of you self-insure and consider the risks low.

Also sidewall punctures are never reparable.
Also, not sure it was or just a newer tire (industry or government) ruling, anything needing repair on the outer tread on either side will not be repaired. My friend does repair and did fix mine, but that was 2nd time in a few years of exact same repair (plug). Perhaps too much flexing causes leakage, but now that I am retired and van doesn't put on much mileage, I'm willing to see how long repair will last, again and again and... Ha.
