If you are in a pinch for cash, you really should look into buying a set of new take-offs. You'll spend half of what you are talking about. I know you said you don't want used, but I'm not sure what everyones infatuation with road hazard warranties and such are? I mean, you catch a nail, plug it, $4.99.
I'm kinda young, 35, but in my almost 20 years of driving, I've never had a need for a unicorn warranty. I blew out 1 tire, used a donut for a few days while I waited for a new replacement tire that I ordered off the internet, then paid someone to put it on. I think I was out $200 tops, it was a car tire. That was 5 years ago. Aside from that, I've never had a flat that I couldnt permanently fix with a plug. Have never had to deal with treadwear warranties either.
You buy a set of take-offs from craigslist, I think you'll be good for a long time.
