I would seriously look at renegotiating this if possible. I paid $1045 for a five year plan in September on my 2010 335i Msport E93 CPO with 18" wheels with RFTs. Six weeks into it I had a rear flat; would have been a $500.34 repair instead of a $50 deductible.

Some considerations when looking at these insurance plans is: how much do you drive and on what sort of road conditions, how long do you expect to keep the car, do you think you'll switch to non BMW wheels and/or tires not used by BMW, how easy is it to get to a BMW dealer vs third party, and would you consider patching vs. replacing if appropriate.
