Dont do it
They are trying to fleece you, "roaside assistance is free from MB for lifetime, that includes tire changes, battery replacement, a little fuel, and any repairs under warranty if they can be done (hoses belts, battery etc)". The dealer gets re-emursed from MBUSA for this service. Post warranty they will charge, but they can arrange a tow etc.
If one of your tires fail under the tire manufacturers warranty, the tire dealer or MB will adjust them based on certain factors like time and wear. There should be a tire warranty in the owners booklet. A new set of good tires should be less than that and you should get 4/5 years out of them , and MB wheels just dont fail. If you willfully damage them, their warranty probably has small print. If you plan on keeping your car post new car warranty, purchase the add on 4 yr/50,000, 8 year 100,000 max, its a much better deal.
