Tire insurance?

I bought a 2005 CLK 320 a couple weeks ago, and the dealer suggested I buy a $600 tire/wheel insurance, valid for 5 years, coverage up to $4000. Are there really that many problems with the CLK tires that I need a separate insurance fr this? Is the insurance worth it?

RE: Tire insurance?

not sure or not if your deal is the same as mine but --

i bought from my dealer the tyre and wheel insurance when i bought new my 06 s500 (it came with the amg sportline trim package). it only cost $199. my coverage is unlimited as to miles and to number of incidents/ claims and is not limited to $4,000 in claims as your insurance seems to be. the insurance is valid for five years and appeared to be a good deal given the low profile nature of the amg sportline trim package tyres and expensive amg rims.

now -- if your insurance is similar (dealer-offered, details as above, yada) go back and tell him/ her that they are insane to charge you $600.

i'm sure even at $199 that i paid that there is profit for the dealer so at $600 the dealer is raping you for pure profit motives.

$199 is $50 per tyre and wheel (amortized) for five years; i thought that to be a good deal. $600 is $150 per tyre and wheel (amortized) and that seems to be a little high for 'insurance.'

my opinion.
