Most of the time, yes. Just check with any dealer in your area. Keep in mind, you usually have to take it to the dealer where you purchased the policy for claims.

This policy can only be put into place at 1) Time or original Sale 2) CPO Resale

According to the pamphlet, BMW will replace your times as long up to 2/32nd remaining on your tread.
Also was informed they use OEM NEW parts for the wheels.
No pro-rating mentioned. No deductible, no claim limits.

Hopefully this will not attract my car to nails, screws and bolts!

Was informed curb rash was not included.

Sounds like BMW is the one putting out the policy and not an aftermarket company like with my policy. I like the idea of paying a little more upfront and nothing out of pocket down the road... wont be too long now and I've paid your premium price in pro-rate expenses!

My 550i got a nasty deep cut in the sidewall, thank god for the tire insurance. BMW replaced the tire, saw the invoice $384.

Tire and wheel service? Why would you buy that?

Ever bent a wheel on a pothole? If you have some decent sidewall, you will be fine.. If you have 30 series, it could bend the rim.

You could always file a collision claim with your insurance company, but this is cheap insurance.

Plus if you get a nail or screw in your time, they replace the tire.. No charge.

I got a nasty cut (in the sidewall) in my L FRT Tire, Continental Sport Contact installed was $385.00

I declined the BMW insurance at the dealership. Insurance is a scam. Save money and self insure.
