It's probably more likely that his claim wasn't paid due to undisclosed engine modifications or otherwise. If his tyres had good tread I highly doubt they would've refused to pay a claim based on the tyre not having an Australian approval on it. So long as they have tread and meet load ratings it's generally fine.

There's also the potential that he was running illegal sizes.
