It's not a bad idea, but it sounds like your dealership is trying to gouge you. You might want to consider a counter-offer. I was quoted $600 for the coverage, and I'm leaning toward purchasing it myself. It's not just the price of the runflats that concerns me. In fact, I intend to replace the runflats with conventional rubber as soon as I can justify it. Runflats are subject to sidewall damage, and the stiff sidewalls make the wheels more vulnerable as well. I was told that any tires I purchase would be covered, as would separate winter wheels and tires. I typically don't fall for extras and add-ons, but this is very tempting. (I live in Michigan where the roads are pocked, plus I have to drive over railroad tracks on a regular basis.)
