(Of course a bunch of you are going to say yes you have and then I look stupid. LOL)
Three tires is just to break even, you need 4 non-repairable flats in three years to make the tire insurance worth while. I think some of these poster here must live next to a nail factory, personally, I think I got 2 non-repairable flats in 25 years.
