I do wonder the need for this...you can usually find second hand suzuka's online if you hunt around.

For a years' premium / for 200 quid you're almost buying a decent condition second hand rim...

Just a thought...

Sure, second hand and not brand new and is refurbed.

At least this one is in the UK and not Texas.

I walked past a sign in the dealership yesterday...99 a corner to refurb rims. I forgot how much diamond cut rims ...maybe 199? And that'll include taking the rubber on and off which you'd still have to pay a tyre shop to do for you to swap out.

Again, you're crazy to take out rim insurance in my view. You can buy/refurb a rim each year. Presume it'll be your left rims that will suffer the most, so that's two rims max.

2 years of premiums and you can get them fixed up ...you're effectively just prepaying for the repair.

Depends how careful you are and how good you are at parking I suppose.
I would never take out wheel insurance, I can’t remember ever kerbing a wheel.

Doesnt look refurb to me Says it NEEDS refurb and has a big flatspot bottom left in photo between the two spokes Thats worse that my one that I was looking to replace.

I scraped one about 50mm long by 3mm wide and got it fixed for $80 AU Can hardly see where it was done. Guy came to my place and did it.

Didnt need tyre off as was just on the face near the edge
