Upstate NY - Tire Insurance?

Picking up my 2010 M3 Coupe next week, didn't buy, three year lease. I've had good luck with the 550i (w/ sport pkge) I'm turing in, just had a hole patched a few months before I had to replace the rubber anyway.

What's the consensus in the Northeast about Tire Insurance? I plan on buying either stock 18's and snow tires for winters or cheapies but can't imagine the insurance covers anything except the 19's the car comes with.

If memory serves the cost was around $900 +/- for the three years.

Thanks In Advance.

Hit or miss.... my insurance does not cover bent rims only if the rim "can't hold air". I have gotten 1 tire though... I think I paid $675.

bmw has a new tire and rim insurance. covers aftermarket rims as well to a limit. However, the rim must be OEM size. i know coz i spoke to the tire/wheel insurance folks. Unless they misinformed. i have 3 yrs 1200.

i paid ~$900 for 5 years regardless of mileage. had a tire replaced already due to a bubble, no questions asked. i think it's worth it, gives you that peace of mind... especially when those tire prices keep on getting jacked up.

i paid $1,330 at the dealership yesterday to replace 3 tires. My tire insurance required me to pay the money and then get reimbursed within 3 weeks.

it's the dealership who wanted you to fork-up the money. they should be the ones purchasing the tires then get reimbursed by the insurance company. you shouldn't be paying for anything, even if they promise to eventually get you reimbursed.

Live in Saratoga, but drive to NJ and the City regularly. I have until I pick it up Monday to decide. They want $699 for the three year lease, covers all the standard things mentioned on this thread. The Manager swears it covers everything except bald tires and 20" rims. If that's what the fine print says, I think it's worth it.
