Be advised that insurance covers damage to wheels, including curb rash, and replacement of damaged tires (flats, bubbles) that have a specified amount of tread depth remaining. Depending on where you live, this insurance could possibly save a lot of money. In other words, insurance may be a good investment if you live in an area where road conditions are somewhat poor or are subjected to winter conditions. Based on what you said was your cost, $1,000 could be one wheel or two tire replacements. One other thing to consider if you stick with the run flats is that flat tires on those means a new tire...most tire repair shops and dealers won't repair a flat on a run flat.
