I agree completely with quackbury, my only experience with RFT was with my 2011 corvette. I had a major puncture, over 1/4 inch hole which was UN-repairable. I drove the car for over 20 miles before reaching Discount Tires, whom I had road hazard insurance, and the replacement cost to me was $48.00 for a $700.00 tire. With respect to RFT, I elected to by the emergency spare with associated tray, jack ...etc. The thought of being stranded was not appealing. If one is incapable of changing a tire this may not be necessary since the tow truck will take to to a dealership. I do recommend the road hazard insurance but forget the wheel locks. When they steel BMW they have a tow truck and they just take the whole vehicle.
