Run-flat Tire and wheel insurance

So the dealer wants to sell me a tire and wheel ins package for $1595 underwritten by all All state. The equivalent BMW package it $2295. He won't negotiate the price. This for a 328xi lease, lux line, picking up in munich in 2 weeks. I didn't get the package for my last car, a 2005 330xi, and was glad I didn't.

He claims that 1) replacing a run flat is way expensive and they are more susceptible to problems than regular tires and 2) the 18 inch rims are very susceptible themselves, that replacing one will cost $2000, and that is likely to happen on northeast/NJ roads. I have 24 hrs to decide.

I assume he is exaggerating, but how much. Opinions?
