I have a plastic edge fitted to my driver's door. I take it off every time I wash the car, except in the winter, when I fill it with Vaseline!

I have a pound shop gardening kneeling pad attached to my garage wall as a door protector.

Depends how much money they want and if it is a one off or a payment on direct debit every month or year (they try to get DD as some people 'forget' them and keep on paying long after).

Personally I rarely buy insurance except house buildings and contents, and car insurance. Just work out the cost of the insurance, what it actually covers (as others said it probably won't cover kerbing or corrosion which are the two main things that happen to alloys ) and work out for yourself if you need it .....    If an alloy gets wrecked by a pothole most people try to get local council to pay for the damage.

I had a set of Volvo alloys restored for 55/wheel!
I had a mate, bought brand new cars cash in hand, insured them third party (back in the day when third party was a fraction of the price of fully comprehensive), and in twenty years only once had to fork out for a minor bodywork repair.
Don't think I'd have the b*lls to do that, but he reckoned he was quids in!

Unless you are really unlucky, the only damage you are likely to do is kerbing your alloys.  Walk down the street and look at alloys, there are not many that aren't scraped to a slight extent.  I bet the fine print says that this in not covered.

Wheel alignment is only guaranteed at the time it is done. You can drive out of ATS and hit a pothole or a kerb later the same day, knocking the tracking out. Tyre wear depends a lot on how you drive. If you accelerate briskly, corner spiritedly, and brake sharply the tyres could wear out considerably quicker than driving gently.
As Mick says, the compound also has a marked effect.
I had a car with Pirelli soft compound, grippy tyres. I drove like a loon. And I had to replace them every 10,000 miles!

Radio on the left is mine. It says here 2002 - 2007, so perhaps yours is an updated version with the clock set from the RDS.
