Wheel & Tire Insurance

I will be taking delivery of my first M5 this Saturday. Normally I get the wheel and tire insurance with cars that have run flats and each time it has worked out in my favor where the cost of the insurance was covered by the number tires that were replaced by it. Would you guys suggest getting the insurance even though the tires aren't run flats. Can these tires be patched? I live in Tampa where potholes aren't a huge problem.

My understanding is you pretty much can patch any non-runflat tire, as long as the penetration is not too close to the sidewall.
