Does anyone have the full details of what this plan does and does not cover? I'm trying to decide if it's worth it or not.
Thanks!

Attached is the file they sent to me. The 3rd party packages are cheaper but come with headaches like laying out money and waiting to get repaid. Having to get work preapproved. Some dealerships not working with you.

With the BMW package you can pull into any bmw dealership and they change your tire. Its not going to cover curb rash but if there is any rim or tire damage, they will replace. The 3rd party will try to repair your rim as long as it holds air which sucks

As luck has it, I semi-often end up with nails in my tires. Maybe 1-2x a year. Always had them fixed with patch+plug combination. I guess getting new $400 tires is a nice way to make this worth it!

I am not sure but a nail or screw they might just plug or and patch. Now with RFTs they would have to replace cause they are not supposed to be fixed.

It says in the PDF guide from BMW:
"Damage tire(s) will be replaced, not plugged or patched."

Works for me!

I got the 5-year plan for the Wheel and Tire insurance for $1249 -- and added BMW's Paintless Dent Repair for another $400. Both are for five years, unlimited miles. Both are unlimited number of claims, no deductibles, no maximums, and unlimited miles. How can you beat that?

Sorry to bring one back from the dead but the PDF says maximum benefit is $5000. Where do you see no maximums?

Good thing you brought this up, I'm interested in finding out if there is a max as well. I'm actually going to sign for my M on Thursday and was interested in a warranty for my rims/tires. Probably should have started my research on the subject a while ago...whoops.

The top tier BMW plan has no max payout, but it is ~1200 to 1500. I got it for 1200 already had two tires and a wheel replaced, with more than four years of protection remaining.

From what I understand, it's basically a road hazard warranty. The question you have to ask yourself is how often do you get nails, screws, etc in your tires (or how bad are the roads that you drive on - potholes, etc). We don't really have many potholes where I live. The roads are in pretty good shape.

What to do, what to do...
