Is BMW Tire and Wheel Protection worth it?

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.
Thanks for this info. It will help me to renegotiate, if possible.
