I am ordering a 328i luxury line with the standard 18 inch wheels with all season tires.

Is this a good investment? Tires are about $240 each and a wheel is around $1,000 each.

The luxury line has 45 profile tires, couple that with the fact you live in Texes, you should be fine without tire and wheel insurance.
