Tire/Wheel Insurance

Took my 335I in for 1 year service, 7000 miles. Mainly just oil change. I pointed out a bubble in one of my tires, it was small but still a bubble. They replaced no charge or hassel. Glad I have the insurance

What wheel insurance do you have? I have the same small bubble and my dealership said it wouldn't be covered unless it wasn't holding air. Thanks.

Tire/Wheel insurance

It does not have a company name on my paper work. I got it thru the dealer when I bought the car. I thought $700 was kinda high, but that tire would have been around $400 from what I have read here.

The insurance is well worth while. I've had 2 tires replaced for bubbles after hitting potholes. The insurance has already more than repaid for itself. You do have to experience some air loss before the insurance will apply.

I bought the same for my 2006 CPO 330i with Sport Package. I figure replacing two tires or one wheel and it will pay for itself.

My tire insurance requires that I pay for the new tire and then submit a receipt for a refund. Is that how yours works?

Depends. If I can make it to a BMW dealership, I don't pay. If I am out somewhere and can not make it to a BMW dealership, I pay and get reimbursed.

I am not sure what i would have to do if i couldn't make the BMW dealership. Get a tow or buy a new one. Its hard to find some RFT's, not a walmart stock item.

I did find out the insurance runs out on the tires once I have to buy new ones. The wheel coverage is still good for 5 years. Kinda hard to believe they sell a 5 year contract when the tires most likely want last that long

I just checked my contract with InTIRE. It says that my tires (current or new) will be covered for the lifetime of the warranty which is five years.

some tire warranties are ridiculous.
