Just wanted to let you all know that I apparently hit a VERY small pothole and damaged the sidewall on my passenger rear tire. 21" rims. I think I remember doing it, and all I can tell you is it didn't hit my radar as any big event at the time. Unfortunately the coverage wasn't available and $500++ later I am waiting on delivery of a new tire.
Now it could have been worse as my rim was OK. I love the look of the 21" rims but without this coverage they could get expensive in a hurry. Discount wanted $75 per tire for tire coverage which they would have sold me on all four even though I didn't get them from Discount. So in essence the rim insurance for four years is $150/year.
I really didn't think I hit anything hard enough to damage it, so be forewarned.
