i had the same, my local dealer wanted to sell me 2 new rims, they then said they would do a run out test on the cracked rims (at a charge) and if they were within bmw tolerance, they might be able to get a "good will gesture" from bmw, they wouldnt say if this meant the total cost of the rims or not. I decided to just buy a new set of rims and no runflats. IMHO the oem rims are crap and not upto the job and the runflats are over priced and give a rubbish ride.
You can try your dealer but dont hold out too much hope, they will try to wriggle out of it.
