I didn't because I chose to "self-insure". That being said I picked up a screw during the first three months and the dealer refused to honor the factory Dunlop warranty, YES there is a factory warranty on the tires.

I took it to a local tire store and they reluctanlty patched it for free. I wrote letters to the dealership the tire store and Dunlop, then miraculously the service department became very interested in taking care of me. They replaced my tire for free as an act of good faith but that was only after I spent hours dealing with the issue.

Think a lot a bout where you live, the driving conditions and your ability to absorb the cost of tire replacement. Don't forget to ask the about the tire warranty on the literature they give you at the time of pickup. It is written in a guide published by BMW not the tire manufacturer.
