    I know I read somewhere that you could buy wheel or wheel/tire insurance. Of course, I never did; and now I have a curbed wheel. Did anyone buy this, or does anyone have any information? It can't protect the one I already curbed, but maybe it wold be good moving forward.

    Thanks in advance!

    I did have it on my old jeep. I don't remember the company name but it is usually under the price of one factory rim. Most dealers offer it and you local dodge dealer can sell it to you. I used to work there and paid $120 for 7 years but that was cost.

    FYI the wheel warranties don't cover curbing

    Only Rim and Tire coverage i like is for here in Michigan for Potholes and Nails and Debris i work in sales at a dealership and that is the best thing next to an extended warranty on a pre owned vehicle but people in southern states dont need to worry as much as us as far as potholes

    Cubeman,

    Good to hear then my mistake, All the packages my dealer offered covered wheel damage like bending or destroying the rim, but not regular curbing.

    Mine was a 290 add on to the Chrysler warranty I bought from Chryslerwarrantydirect.com.
    Have to buy the extended warranty to add tires/rims....1500/yr annual payout.....

    I bought it, got home read the fine print and cancelled it.

    Still working with the dealership to ensure that I will get refunded.

    There is a cancellation period.

    I read something subtle about "road hazards." Curbing, I am sure, does not apply.

    You are correct Jon.... road hazard only... curbs need not apply. Just didn't seem worth it to me.

    The package I got was Rims, Tires, Key Fobs, Dentless Paint Repair, Towing, and a little bit more. I paid $695 for 7 years but even if I use it once it is worth it.

    edited to add: Curbing not covered but Windshield repairs are. I think the name is the Titanium Protection Program.
