What's the consensus on these 2 extra warranties? I know they can be had lower priced than listed MSRP. But if you did or did not purchase, please share why or why not...

Tire and Wheel 7 year, No deductible, MSRP $470
Benefits
Full Repair or Replacement Cost for all four (4) OEM or aftermarket tires and wheels, or Full Replacement Value (at current retail market value) for all four (4) tires and wheels where tires/wheels are no longer available. Includes cost of mounting, balancing and stems.

• Up to $1,500 maximum per year for tires/wheels.
• Includes replacement of tire pressure sensor gauge
• $100 “Sign-And-Go” Towing and Roadside Assistance
• $0 Deductible per repair visit
• 24 Hour Service Provided by Agero, Inc. 1-800-521-2779

NOTE: Plan coverage applies only to the damaged tire and/or wheel. Tires must have a minimum of 2/32" tread depth (4/32" for trucks/sport utility vehicles) to qualify for Road Hazard coverage. Damage due to lack of maintenance, normal wear and tear, cosmetic blemishes or scratches, corrosion, loss of color, or other conditions that do not impact the ability of the wheel to hold air or be properly balanced are not covered. Please see the Plan Provision for full details.

Yes. They are available for discounted price from hays Jeep. There’s the name circulating in one of the related threads. I will post the link when I find it. I got the tire and wheel package along with lifetime warranty.

Tom winkles. He gives good discounts. I think the tire and wheel was around $300 or so which was pretty good value in my opinion. I skipped the appearance care. You can buy it if you think it is worth it. That covers only repairs and not replacement.

I'm thinking the T&W for sure, especially with these 20" black noise wheels, I think it brings some comfort and security and could pay for itself quickly. But the AACP, I just am not convinced. How practically, realistically, do you see yourself using the AACP? What are some examples of it being used?

I also got the Tire & Wheel for $295 last year as well as the Maximum Care Lifetime Warranty. I couldn't get any kind of reasonable price from my dealer so I bought from: Tom Winkels, HAYES JEEP, 3718 Stadium Drive, Kalamazoo, MI 49008 269-488-2080.

I've gotten quotes from Tom Winkels, Bob Cline, and Clay Robbins. They are the 3 guys offering the best deals. All very close in price.

Still deciding, figure I have until 12 mos or 12K miles before having to decide. But no buyers for the Auto Appearance Care Plus 5 Year warranty? How come?

I bought both from Tom at Hayes. Keep in mind Mopar usually raises their warranty prices on April 1st each year.

It is pretty easy to get a door ding in a parking lot in California when the Santa Ana winds are blowing. The Pacifica has no protection of the rear of the car beyond the back doors as there is no trim piece around the wheel wells.

Is this demonstrated every year it goes up on 4/1? Or just April's Fools :laugh:

So you got the appearance plus warranty?

My dealer sold me the Tire & Rim warranty in September. It sure cost more than what was discussed early this year. It is not even a Mopar warranty. It is from a third party. $799 ouch.

i got the tire and wheel warranty. my price was higher than above, but he offset it by changing my interest rate, so my monthly payment stayed the same. he literally told me that i can just put a nail in the sidewalls and get new tires! being that the front 2 are much more worn than the back, and it's still winter up here...... he said mopar never asks for the wheels or tires back as long as it doesn't go over $700 per incident.

I personally would not get either. On average you have to lose money on them or the mfg wouldn't be selling them, and these don't cover any sort of catastrophic event that would have a huge downside.
