Has anyone taken out separate wheel and tire insurance on their Lucid? I did for both my 911 Turbo S and Navigator - and was glad I did!

Thanks in advance.

I'll be the first to admit I've never heard of this. I'd love to hear more - especially the details about why you're so glad you did!

I would love to hear more as well. Who sells it and what does it cost?
Didn't know this was a thing with Lucid but looking into what Porsche offers, I hope we get something similar:

Proactive protection.
Tires and wheels are the only parts of your Porsche vehicle that touch the road. Unfortunately, they also come into contact with road hazards such as glass, nails, potholes, and debris. We offer a comprehensive way to protect them from hazards seen and unseen.
Our Premier Tire & Wheel Protection will keep you on the road by keeping your tires and wheels in top shape.
Available on new, pre-owned, and Certified Pre-Owned Porsche vehicles at the time of vehicle purchase or lease only.
Premier Tire & Wheel Protection coverage includes:
  • Replacement of a tire if structurally damaged to the extent that it fails to hold air due to a covered road hazard, including glass, potholes, debris or nails (includes tires with run-flat technology); tires are never plugged or patched
  • Replacement of a wheel if road hazard damage prevents the wheel from sealing to the tire, resulting in the tire failing to hold air or maintaining the tire manufacturer’s air pressure specifications
  • Towing expenses reimbursed up to $250 per occurrence in the event of covered road hazard damage
  • Costs associated with the replacement of the tires and/or wheels, plus approved labor charges, including mounting, balancing, valve stems, tire disposal, and taxes
  • A $50 deductible² will be applied per replacement claim, regardless of how many tires and/or wheels are being replaced at that time
  • Transferable for a $50 fee if you sell your vehicle to a private party³
Cosmetic Repair includes:
  • Cosmetic wheel repair for damage such as nicks and scrapes
Coverage information:
  • Cosmetic wheel repair is limited to sanding, painting, or refinishing the wheel without the need to apply additional material or bend/straighten the wheel⁴
  • Cosmetic wheel repair is limited to a total of eight (8) individual wheel repairs during the Product Agreement term
  • There is no deductible associated with Cosmetic Repair for wheels
Coverage exclusions may apply:⁵
  • Damage to tires with less than 3/32" tread depth at the lowest point on the tire at the time of damage
  • Cosmetic damage to tires
  • Replacement or re-manufacturing of wheels due to cosmetic damage
  • Damage caused by vandalism, theft, or driving with low or no tire pressure
  • Repairs made without prior authorization
  • Damage caused by road conditions (such as uneven lanes or metal plates) found in construction zones or construction sites
  • Failures from normal wear and tear, improper wear, or dry rot
Your tires and wheels will be replaced using original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and OEM-approved tires and parts.
Your coverage is not restricted by vehicle mileage and will continue even if you replace your tires.

If damage occurs:
  • Nationwide service available at all participating authorized Porsche dealers or other authorized licensed repair facilities
  • Replacement parts will be covered for the remainder of the Product Agreement term⁶
The optional Porsche Premier Tire & Wheel Protection is available for purchase as a stand-alone product, or with a Porsche Multi-Coverage Protection package.

² A $50 deductible per tire replaced and $100 deductible per wheel replaced will be applied in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut.
³ Product Agreement is transferable within 30 days of the covered vehicle resale or lease assumption.
⁴ The size, paint color, and finish of a wheel can impact the effectiveness of cosmetic wheel repair techniques. Reasonable efforts will be made to cosmetically repair the wheel and to match the original wheel paint and finish. Replacement of a wheel will not be authorized solely because cosmetic damage is deemed not repairable due to the size of the wheel, or because the paint and finish do not match the original paint and finish.
⁵ Additional exclusions may apply. Please see your Product Agreement for specific coverage details, including limitations and a complete list of exclusions.
⁶ Replacement tires and wheels must meet vehicle manufacturer’s specifications.

I can't say i've ever had wheel and tire insurance on any of my cars either. Which insurance provider did you use on your 911 and Navigator @gmglass?
