After repeatedly reading threads on the pros - vs - cons of the 19 and 21 inch wheels, I would like to propose something to Tesla. Last summer when I purchased my BMW (with 19 inch performance wheels and 35 profile performance tires), the dealership offered a genuine BMW Tire and Wheel insurance policy (they also offered a third party policy at a slightly reduced rate, but I went with the BMW policy). Essentially, if the tire and or wheel are damaged to the point they will not hold air, they will be replaced. Now this does not cover cosmetic "curb rash", or a mild bend that does not affect the tire/wheel's ability to hold air, but does cover damage significant enough to cause the tire/wheel to fail (not hold air). The package could be purchased for 3, 4 or 5 years. It made financial sense, and I purchased the package with the low profile tires even though I have never bent a rim before. I thought the price was reasonable, and I paid just over $1400 for a 5 year unlimited mileage package - which would essentially be the cost of 2 bent rims and 2 new tires if I did not have the package. There is no limit as to the number of times the policy is good for, so I'm covered for up to 5 years (although it will be less as the BMW will go our son when the Model S is ready). Maybe we could all encourage Tesla to offer such a package. Other high end cars that they will be competing with offer it, so Tesla hopefully will consider it. PLEASE!!!!
