NYC roads, BMW wheel and tire insurance

I dont drive that much, but 19" on 535 make me a bit nervous.
Would getting BMW wheel and tire insurance be worth while?


I am usually careful but the car is not that light and 19" dont have that much sidewall. On the other hand, they are runflats so sidewall is pretty stiff which is good with the bad, tires themself are pretty expensive.

Yay or nay?

Get the insurance. I have it. I've gone through at least 15 tires in 21/2 yrs.....YEP! No questions asked. Even bent 3 rims.......they replaced them too. I have the insurance for 4 years. 19 inch runflats don't do well in NYC. Once you leave NYC its pretty smooth sailing but potholes are everywhere, just drive safe. When the insurance period is up I plan to go to 18 or 17 inch wheels!
