of course the warranty is only for the OEM tires and wheels that came on your car.

I don't think the warranty is provided by BMW but a third party and that was why I asked and it was a serious question. Would some other insurance companies like the auto club cover aftermarket rims/tires?

So I went ahead and bought the tire and wheel warranty from DiFeo (United Auto) a month ago to the day. Today I discovered a blister on my right front tire. I only have 700 miles on the car. I'll be making a claim this week. Note that the customer service line (which must preauthorize any claims) was not available today (Sunday).

Thinking back, I probably got the blister when hitting a transition from asphalt to concrete at the entrance to the NJ Tpke exit 13A toll booth heading west on I-78.

Does anyone know how safe it is to drive on a blistered tire?

No one can really tell. Since you have the RFT, I wouldn't be too concerned. Just bring your car in tomorrow to have them replace your tire.

Yeah, I figured that the thick piece of plastic lining the sidewalls would keep the things from blowing, but you never know. I won't be driving it this week anyway. It will have to wait till next week. Thx.

If I were you I would get it. On the day of delivery for my car the manager asked if I wanted it for some unbelievably low price due to some promotion and me waiting there for a while before my CA came back from somewhere, but I declined thinking "I'll NEVER need this"

Honest to God, not 2 minutes after I left their driveway I got a flat tire warning and when I got home their was 0 tire pressure but no nail in the tire just a hole. Needless to say I forked over $450 for a new tire.

You never know when you can curb your wheel either so for me, next time it's a no brainer.

We sell it for 599-699 here depending on term. I did not have it at first paid over 1000 for 2 new rims and tires. The I purchased it and they are replacing my tire for the 2nd time because of a bubble in the sidewall. I wish I would have just bought it from the beginning. Live and learn I guess. It also is worth it because I have the 18" 162's.

how many miles did you put on your tires before you got the bubble?

Didn't realize this insurance covers the rims too. How much rim "damage" is required to file a claim? Bent rims covered? Curb scratches?

On a related note, I had a nail in the tire on the MINI earlier this month (also uses RFT). Local tire shop removed the nail, patched the tire (from inside), remounted, rebalanced for $14.75.
