My car is due for delivery on the 14th March. I am yet to finalise the paperwork at the dealership in terms of adding on tyre and alloy protection. Is it something worthwhile? I think it was in the region of around £300 which covered three years. I could be slightly out on this price. Anyone already purchased this? Any advice would be appreciated.

Do you actually mean 'insurance'? If so does the tyre protection cover you against tyre wear?

What type of mileage will you be doing?

If less than 12k a year I'd say it's not worth it

Alloy insurance would be against a pothole causing damage to the alloy? I've been driving for 35yrs and have yet to damage an alloy so that it needed to be replaced. The actual fit/finish of the alloy should fall into the warranty surely...for example if they started to blister or peel.

Just my tuppence

They tried to sell alloy protection to me too, and it alos coverd kerb damage which often happens. £60 per wheel to tidy up for comparison.

Just learn to drive more carefully

I've had my jag for 12yrs/100k miles and have still to curb an alloy and it's got the same ones it was supplied with 21yrs ago!

My Audi I curbed the day after I got it 5yrs ago so there's no rhyme or reason, cost £100 and nothing since. So 17yrs over 2 cars and a cost of £100

I do know that some tyre replacement packages are good for high mileage drivers and with 19" rubber on an executive barge being quite expensive

Thanks for the advice. It covers against punctures and the replacement of tyres too. My last car was a Mokka and the day after I got it I had a puncture needing a new tyre, hence I'm giving it some thought. Useful advice though. Maybe I need to get the price again before completely deciding.

OK so factor in the cost of replacing all the tyres, mine came with Michilen Primacy 3, which are an 'OK' tyre, but I shall be buying a set of (excellent) Michy Cross-Climate for £400 for swapping over Winter months (Oct-March)

Do you do mega miles? I think tyres on this relatively light car should be OK for 30k miles

Am guessing as a FWD vehicle it would benefit from Tyre rotation each year?
