Or you can buy my barely used set of 18x8 ET34 rims with 225/40/18 Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance winters.

I used them for 2 winters for a total of 2500 kms since I work from home. Now I have an X5 and my 3 series will be garaged this winter.

PM me if interested.

if it is a package warranty, you are likely out of luck. And in my personal opinion, I would never opt for a tire/rim warranty because refinishing rims (even all four of them) would cost like $400 or so. Tires....debatable, but I think this specific type of warranty is pure profit for dealers.

Again, my two cents....

Make sure to read the fine print as it may indicate if the rim warranty is for rims alone....
