As tturedraider has noted, pushback on those items should be able to get them cancelled.

The wheel and tire insurance has some value, specially in high pothole areas. The price she was charged for it seems really high, based on what others have reported paying.

The $2500 maintenance plan will only pay for itself if she gets 2 brake jobs out of it, otherwise it is a stunning money pit. Check the "miles to brake change" indicator on the dash to see how many miles to the next brake job, and then figure out if you think it will go through 2 sets in the 42k miles she could own the car before the plan expires. Unless it is very close to the next change, I don't see that one making a lot of sense at that price, either.
