I would think you can, OP, but either a call to your dealership or reading the policy will tell you for sure. If any facility, BMW dealership or otherwise, is confident they'll get paid, I doubt they are all that concerned over whether the money flows from your pockets to theirs, or from the insurer's to theirs.

Hot damn! Which dealership is this that gives out 650 GC's for loaners! I'm curious... what happens if you get a flat tire/nail/bent rim in the loaner... does your wheel and tire insurance cover the loaner as well??? I'm guessing it would?

Seriously. I had to settle for a 320i last weekend while I got my oil change. That thing was a joke.

Drove the 650i GC two weeks ago and that V8 is just pure sex.

this might be a stupid question, but does the warranty only work for OEM RFT tires?

the dealership made a point to mention that it would cover aftermarket tires and wheels when they sold me the plan. I didnt see this anywhere in writing however...

Wheel and tire insurance covers defects in the tires and rims as well as nails, pops, cracked/bent rims, etc.

good to know; I guess this might be one of those "YMMV" depending on dealer

thx

The 650 grand coupe is pure sex !! I got the 650 GC part of the dealerships extended test drive they were having for the car. It happened, the issue with the tire was same time as the test drive. So worked out. The 650 GC xi which got is amazing. That engine is like no other! The power is amazing! The roar of the v8 ( twin turbo , twin scroll... 445hp 480 torque ) the quickness ..car just f'n moves...the handling , the comfortness of the seats and ride. BMW once again at perfection! Non stop people looking at the car. Told them at the dealer they can just keep my car .. Bc they ain't gettin this one back ha ..
