Are you saying that the savings on the maintenance costs by including it in your payments is $250.?
Not sure what you are asking about in terms of the warranty for tires? Can you explain why you would need $500. on tires each year? What is your expected mileage & what mileage is covered under the lease?
As far as maintenance costs are concerned, it depends upon the terms of a particular lease. The leases are written both ways. Since you mentioned prepaying maintenance costs, I presume that your proposed lease passes the
routine maintenance costs on to the lessee? Whether or not it makes sense to prepay those costs depends upon the savings involved and what kind of mileage you are dealing with. Depending upon make of the 2016 auto you are talking about and your projected mileage most 2016 leased autos require very little maintenance in the 1st 36 months of operation.
As far as the mobility tires are concerned, when is the last time you had a flat tire? So you need to evaluate that in terms of the cost involved. If you are driving around a lot of construction sites, or anywhere else where the risk of flat tires is increased, perhaps it would be prudent to have that protection. If you do mostly highway driving on good roads, I would think it wouldn't make sense.
