    Awesome. Can I still buy the 21" rim insurance? All 4 of my rims are in pristine condition, I promise:smile:
    I'm starting to think after driving on the 21" rims that it might actually be worth it.

    The Tire and Wheel Insurance is presumably on an annual basis?! Doesn't say so yet.

    Is the tire and wheel proram cost per year? Isn't that expensive? How much does a set of tires cost and how often do they need to be replaced with normal driving?

    Oh, if that is per year then maybe not a good deal. Minor rim damage is maybe $150 per rim but might help if you really messed up a rim.

    The tire and wheel plan does not seem to be offered in Canada...

    Am I the only one confused about the mixing the terms "service" and "warranty"? The first segment is the maintenance program that is required to maintain your warranty, while the second is an extended warranty program. But they're both called service?

    You are not. I think that is worded wrong. The $2500 extended deal is for annual service only, from 50k to 100k miles. That pricing seems too cheap for an extention of the full warranty.

    No, I think it's the other way around. It's an extended warrantee, but doesn't include annual service. I would assume that annual service for the second 4 years would be the same $1900 as it was for the first four years. Very confusing, though.

    I believe it's a ONE TIME COST. I purchased a similar insurance for my 650i and it was for 6 years. Not sure how long TM's insurance is for.

    That's correct. It is for the 4 years of rims/tire coverage

    I'm a little confused by this part:
    What does or mean in this case? The latter of? The former of? You pick which on you prefer? That aside...

    I don't think any owner in North America of a Model S Signature qualifies for "within 15 days...of delivery".

    (For the Tire and Wheel Replacement Program.)

    Mine just says "Model S" because mine is neither Performance nor Signature. So, it indicates that the "15 days" is just a generic way to cover all future owners. For you, and almost all existing owners, the 15 days doesn't apply, and you have until April 15th.

    Does anyone else think the Tire and Wheel Replacement Program might have a typo? 4 years or 12,500 miles (whichever comes first) is a very strange combination. I'm assuming it should be 4 years or 50,000 miles otherwise it is really a 1 year program for most people.
