Do I need insurance for Michelin Primacys?

Just took delivery of my '12 535i m sport and only just noticed that I don't have the notorious Good year RFT on. I took wheel/tire insurance but now I'm wondering whether I should cancel it.

Why wouldn't you? I don't have the time to wait around in a shop when I can have it done at work on someone else's time. If you haven't personally used one, don't criticize it just for the sake of it.
