    Tire and mag insurance

    After four long months, I'm finally picking up my CLA45 tomorrow. As usual, before you get the keys, you have to sit down with the finance manager and ear them talk about every extra protection you should purchase for your own protection. I'm leasing my CLA, so the main ones would be "excessive wear and tear" and "tire and wheel" protection.

    I was wondering if any of you took the "tire and wheel" protection? If you did, did you use it? Do you think it was worth it?

    I took the 19" wheel option and from past experience with my S4 on Canadian road it could prove to be a good investment!

    I have it. I ran over a pothole on the freeway in the rain and ruined my tire. The tire was replaced. It also did minor damage to my wheel. Parking one evening
    I scraped my other front wheel and did minor damage to that one. I had both wheels fixed recently. Insurance covered it all. I say yes.

    I too would recommend getting this. I've used it multiple times and has already paid for itself.

    I got it for four years protection. First Winter, had two tires replaced and work done on two rims. If you are in an area with snow-ice-potholes, I would recommend it. Low profile rims/tires take a pounding.

    what would you say is a reasonable price for the protection on a 39 month lease? I got quoted $2,200 CAD not sure if that's a good price. Seems a bit pricey but I know summer tire and rims can cost a lot (went with 19s) and I'm pretty sure was told it covers winter tires too. I will decide on this in a few months close to delivery time

    I got it on mine. 2 weeks after purchase the left front tire got a big knot on the side of it, may pop is what we always called it. Took it in and got a new tire. Glad I got it already. Only problem is they have to order the tire so the car was out of commission for a couple of days.

    After reading all your comments, I did decide to get it. The original quoted price was 2418$ CAD and I purchased it for 1900$ CAD.
