The point being if you can't self insure for a tire replacement, then maybe owning an expensive car with fancy 45-series tires and delicate rims is not in your best financial interest.

And just to be clear, if the 335i can't be owned past the 100,000 mile warranty period (100,000 is the max I see BMW willing to let people pay for) then the car is a peice of shit. That said, if you expect it to only last 100,000 miles and drive great while doing it, then by all means, it's your money so do what thall wilt.
