Usually I assume extended or additional warranties are a money loser for the consumer. In this case, both my current and previous ML63s had significant wheel damage to multiple wheels from nailing the curb when parking. It only takes one hit to do it.
In my case I parallel park at work 5 days a week 2.5 years per car. One or two times hitting the curb while parking and thats enough to need new wheels. It sucks. I am talking about scratching and gouging the wheel, but not affecting or doing damage to the tires.
That being said, I am still wanting to know if anyone has experience getting the insurance to cover that kind of damage. If so it would be a no brainer, hit the curb once, demand a new wheel. Even if that happened one time, the insurance cost is less than the cost of the wheel.
If anyone has experience, please let me know asap.
