Re: Mopar Vehicle Protection?

Tire and wheel is the same for the SRT and non-SRT vehicles. Around $275.

$250? The tire alone is $400 and the wheel is $1500.

I was trading in my 5.7 2011 for a HA, until I was offered an SRT test drive and changed my order. Another $15k and you have one of the most powerful SUVs in the world, in the league of $130k plus...
