BMW Tire & Wheel Protection?

If you've signed up for it, how does it work?

Bring the car to the dealer, no money out of pocket or reimbursement check in the mail?

I got it too - I just take it to the dealer and they deal with getting everything done, no out of pocket.

Thanks that's what I was hoping for.
One of my tires developed a sidewall bulge and need to get it fixed asap

That's interesting.... I came in because I needed a flat repair or replacement and the service advisor told me they were able to make the repair; and that it would be cheaper than my "deductible" for the "tire & wheel insurance" that I'm paying for... Maybe I was taken advantage of Freakin stealerships :

I also wonder since I have my winter rims/tires on now if they'll fix/replace my summer rft with a nail in it if I just bring in the rim/tire by itself? I'd assume yes it's actually less work for them...
