Re: Tire & Wheel Protection Contract?

So much misinformation on this thread.

The tire-rim protection is not limited to the original set of tires, it's not prorated either, so a damaged tire will be replaced with a new tire.

One pothole, one bent rim, one damaged tire, one broken tire pressure sensor=$800+ in repairs covered 100% by the protection plan.

I'd say that's not a bad deal at all.

Well said glow 310.00 is a small price to pay for wheel protection. Especially since it covers aftermarket wheels also. I gladly forked over the 310.00 at the delivery of my GC.

The policy does not appear to cover cosmetics as written but people on here have had wheels replaced for that so it appears to be at dealer discreation for cosmetic damage.

Re: Tire & Wheel Protection Contract?

I'm in the perfect position to discuss this because I just put this policy to use.

I purchased a 2015 overland maybe 2 months ago. I bought the mopar tire/rim policy for $310. 6 years of coverage.

Two weeks ago I had the misfortune of misjudging a turn and clipped a curb with my front passanger side wheel. Ended up taking a chunk out of the rubber and clipping the rim. I took it to my trusted jeep dealership and was able to get the damage covered under the warranty. They gave me a brand new matching rim and tire. They didn't fix the damage, they didn't replace the rim with a used one. BRAND NEW TIRE AND RIM. The total for the Rim and Tire was around $850. I paid $0 out of pocket.

That one time payment of $310 just paid for itself 3x over.

Here's the catch. The policy lasts 6 years. However you're only allowed 4 tire/rim replacements over that entire 6 years. In addition, you only have $1500 to work with each year. Meaning if the same thing happened to me again I would be stuck paying the difference once the totals reach over $1500 for the year.

No one plans on bending their rims, scraping them up, or doing anything that will hurt their vehicle. But shit happens. Use this policy once in the 6 years you own the vehicle and you get you're money back and then some.

I documented my damage in another thread titled "be honest, how bad is it?" (Id link it but I'm on mobile). Go for the mopar coverage and never look back

I'm glad you replied to this thread and explained the policy in further detail.

I'm considering buying the Mopar road hazard, and I've had a lot of discussion with Bob @ Ziegler over what's covered. Like you said, you get a total of 4 wheels and 4 tires total over the 7 years, and $1,500 per year limit. I've seen some posts on this topic elsewhere that incorrectly state you can do up to 2 wheels per year but it's 4 wheels total over the life of the policy and 4 tires too at least how it was explained to me. With these Summit rims costing $750 per all it takes is one bent rim and it's worth it. Frankly I don't even care about the tires since I'll be replacing the Forteras when they go but I definitely want it for the rims.

Re: Tire & Wheel Protection Contract?

Thank you for the clarification, I will be adding it to my SRT for sure. I am sure those rims are not cheap either .

I got tyre and rim protections on my previous Jeep, didn't get it on my new one though. It was 3 years through my financier rather than the dealer but I never used it. I got 70,000 kms out of my stock tyres (Continental's) and no punctures.

I would consider the state of your roads and what wheels you have. The roads where I live suck and although I never got a puncture or any damage to my Jeep wheels (18" with reasonably big walls) I cracked a rim on my Astra running on 18" wheels with low profiles, the tyre was perfectly fine though. $1000 later I probably would have liked some wheel protection

I have heard that the 20" Jeep wheels running the lower profile tyres are a bit more prone to punctures and damage than the 18"s. This is just something I have read though, not through mine or anyone I know's experience!

According to the way the policy is written that damage would not be covered however some dealers are covering that type of cosmetic damage. It is up to the discresion of the dealer.
