I'm getting Gulia Ti Lusso, it comes with 18" rims. I drive in NYC, they are offering me tire and rim and dent protection for $930, was wondering if it makes sense to get it?

On my current benz, I got just one blowout in 3 years, 18" rims, my previous benz I had 6 blowouts with 18" rims. Before that a BMW with no blowouts. In your experience, is it worth getting?

Depends on the roads, but one hit and that $930 pays for itself....fwiw, I’ve only ever seen one bent 18” rim and it was because the guy hit a curb.

please note that the tire and rim package does not cover curb damage.

i would have considered getting it if it did cover that.

there are certain restrictions also with the paintless dent removal.

does anyone know what that is?

thanks

* edit: I just read in another post that the tire and rim protection does cover curb damage. Make sure you check with your dealer though.

Thanks. I'm gonna ask about the dent removal, they said under 4 inches dents, Zurich dent removal. They offered a few plans though, don't remember the difference, leaning toward getting it. I got a brochure for Zurich Select. Just strange that Benz charged alot less for it for 3 years, then Alfa does for 2 years.

I opted for the extended warranty as opposed to the tire / dent package but the extended warranty is also more than twice the price.
