Exclamation The RFT saga lives on

I have only about 11 years of RFT "experience" & about 160,000 miles stretched across 3 of my personal BMWs + my spouse's BMW ... and the answer from me = "NO". I have "suffered" through 3 punctures and 2 potholes. All but two were covered (with replacement tires) by the tire manufacturer's road hazard warranty. One pothole damage incl a replacement bent wheel was on my dime (lost the case against the negligent municipality) and one was in the early days when I was a "less-than-well-informed consumer" and paid for a replacement tire that was "deeply discounted" by my BMW dealer.
