Tires For Life? You May Have Reached The End of Life. . .

My wife took her X3 in for service at Towson this morning (not for tires.) We purchased the Tires For Life when we bought the X3. During the course of her check-in, they mentioned that the Tires For Life company went into bankruptcy last week Towson says they are trying to work things out.

I don't know if this affects other dealerships, but if you have it you might want to give your dealer a call.

Have Fun,
Rick

Two things:
  1. Might not be a great option if you can't collect on it.
  2. I have a full set of run-flats for the 1er with 10 miles on them for sale.
Have Fun,
Rick

Hey Rick,

I have the tires for life policy. I got the "Chapter 7" letter yesterday. I haven't talked to our dealer yet, but if they go under and our dealer cannot get us a deal, I'll buy your RFT's from you. Since you are local, I'll even come and pick them up from you.
I'll be in touch after we get something from our dealer.


Tom

I truly didn't start this as a "for sale" thread, but thanks - local is absolutely the best for tires due to shipping costs.

Let me know if you want them.

Have Fun,
Rick
