Question Tire problems with 19in RFTs?

Hi all,

Just ordered a 535xi GT and am worried about the many problems F10 owners are experiencing with bubbles in their 19 inch run flats. Given that the F07 has somewhat larger diameter wheels for the sport package ( 245/45/19 vs the 245/40/19 for F10), I'm thinking maybe there is more cushion to protect tires from road hazards. I am considering the tire & wheel insurance ($1149/5 yrs), and am wondering what are your experiences, whether you had tire/wheel problems and whether the insurance is worth the cost for the peace of mind for the F07?
