Pirelli Tire Warranty?? Flat Tire Problem

Yesterday was an expensive afternoon - on our way to Thanksgiving dinner, as we exited the freeway we heard a pop and joy of all joy our rear drivers tire had a flat. It's a pretty major hole in the tread - not something like a small nail hole that could be fixed, it's several inches long. And we have no clue how it happened. We did not see any debris on the road and heard nothing hit the bottom of the car. Has anyone else had problems with their Pirelli 21" tires? There is no warranty through Lucid and no info on contacting the manufacturer for their warranty - I mean seriously the tires have less than 350 miles on them. They should be able to handle some freeway driving. We leave for Vegas next weekend and I am now super nervous that these tires are going to blow out in the middle of nowhere and there isn't even a spare. Lucid has no place to tow it to on Thanksgiving, so today we will be having them flat bed it to the Costa Mesa service center.

No tire warranty booklet with the car?
I recently hit a pothole on I5 coming back from L.A. to the Bay Area and developed a slow leak on one front tire sidewall as well as sidewall air bubbles on the other front tire. Couldn’t find a tire dealer with the 21’s in stock and they had a 3-5 day lead time. Lucid did flatbed my car to the Milbrae service center and replaced the tires. They said as of last June, no roard hazard warranty on the tires. It took 1 1/2 days to get my car back, but they did cover replacing of 1 of the tires gratis. That saved me $550. That was appreciated.
A number of years ago I had a Toyota and a front tire blew out on the highway at 8K miles. I went to the Toyota dealership and they told me to go to a firestone dealership (the stock tires were Bridgestone). The manager there spent 20 minutes carefully examining the tire to try to prove it was something I did rather than a defect in the tire. He finally gave up and honored the warranty but I swore that I would never go back to that Firestone dealership again.

What makes the tire dealer think it was a road hazard rather than a defect in the tire?
