: T&W insurance for 17" wheels?

Are the 17" factory tires as easy to damage as the larger 19 and 20's since there are not as low profile? I should be picking up my car in a couple of weeks and was wanting to know if the T&W insurance is needed.

My car just arrived at the dock in Baltimore today, anyone have a estimate how long it will take at the VPC and delivery to Oklahoma? 2 weeks?

The 17 inch factory tires are not low profile tires and these tires do not have the issues associated with 18, 19, & 20 inch tires, which are low profile tires. While any tire can be damaged, you probably do not need insurance in this instance.

Thank you, that is what I was thinking but wanted to hear it from others!
