BMW Tire&Wheel Protection Plan worth it?

Just picked up my new 2013 Z4 35i last night!!(will post some pics later )
And at the dealership, the dealer tried to persuade me to get this "Tire&Wheel Protection Plan" for around $1500, up to $7500 claim, 5 years. And my CA sounds really sincere about it ...

I didn't want to rush into it so I ask her to let me think about it.

So please advice, is it worth the money ?
A million thanks!

they will always persuade you, thats how they make money. Of course they are sincere about taking money outta your pocket.

I didn't take it, used that money to get a set of non-runflats performance tires and never looked back.

it only applies if you are running stock non-runflats, and i hope you don't have a 296 style rim because if you aren't careful, and get that rim bent, you are in a world of hurt with the dealers because you'll find out that their "Tire&Wheel Protection Plan" is really quite conditional.

just my 2 cents, save the money. if you get a flat, good chance to swap for non-runflats with that 1500.

If you plan to switch your wheels or tires, don't get it.
If you plan to get it, negotiate it down. I paid ~$1,200 for mine

not worth it. Get another set of wheel / tire instead. And if you have style 296 its probably the "newer/reinforced" version.
