Yep, I graciously said no to all.

That's why I have insurance for (Windshield), Wheel and Tire- I can always buy new tires (friend owns a tire shop), Wheels if OEM gets too expensive I can always purchase a set of really nice aftermarket wheels of my choice.

Agreed. I love it when they act surprised when I say no.

yep, they always act surprised! “You’re passing up a good deal”

Thinking to myself: so nice of you to offer this amazing deal, it shows you really care by pushing this so hard

Was there ever a poll for number of flat tires and messed up rims per year for people with 19+ rims? That would be interesting. Im sure statistically they make money, they know what theyre doing. This might shed light onto how much

Well, I already blew 20k on options for a ‘19 Cab S, so I’ll have to refuse all the dealer add ons. If I lived in the NE, I’d probably go for tire/wheel insurance. On second thought, I’d probably rethink my choice of cars.....

So true! It was comical yesterday when the very nice - yet very pushy - back office manager/closer said, “You’re the first guy in 2 years ‘x’ months and ‘x’ days to pass on the wheel and tire warranty!”

I told him to wait another year or two until I buy my next Porsche and he’ll have another passer.

If his statistic was anywhere near the truth (which I indeed doubt), then I’ve got to congratulate him for being a fantastic salesman.
