Warranty on Tires

Does anyone recommend purchasing the separate warranty for the tires?

I was told that fixing/replacing tires can be very expensive since its not covered under the regular maintenance program, and a warranty may be worth it.

The cost of tire warranty is roughly $2,200 plus tax.

If warranties make you feel better go for it. But you might be better served by ordering a set online when you need them via overnight or just keep a set handy in your garage if you have extra storage. The prices are as much as $250 per tire.

It depends on your location and the availability of wheels/tyres locally. Also, whether you're planning to stay with RFTs. In Australia, this insurance also covers wheel damage, and this, plus the limited supply of replacement tyres, bends me towards taking this insurance. But it's cheaper here ... <$AUD2,000....so I'd suggest you bargain on the price.

No point in getting staggered fitments on the F48.

Get a spare tire+wheel instead or buy a set of non-run flat wheels balanced for less than that.
