Run-flat Tire and wheel insurance

He claims that 1) replacing a run flat is way expensive and they are more susceptible to problems than regular tires and 2) the 18 inch rims are very susceptible themselves, that replacing one will cost $2000, and that is likely to happen on northeast/NJ roads. I have 24 hrs to decide.

I assume he is exaggerating, but how much. Opinions?

This is the x3 forum. You might get better answers in the 3series forum. But for my opinion that price is crazy! Especially for a 3 year lease. I would pass on that.

If u bought the car then that might be a different story and if the warranty was for 5 years. Also that's a bunch of crap 1rim for $2000! Laugh real loud the next time he mentions that to you
