I understand that the e90 suspension is tuned to use runflats and without them would probably be a little soft. The e60 was sold with and without them so you can easily change back if you want.
That is pretty expensive.
I took out Barclaycard / RAC tyre insurance for 50- equivalent to 150 for 3 years.

RAC tyre insurance as a Barclaycard offer

Costs 49.99 for 12 months, covering upto 250 per tyre, covering upto 1250 annually with upto 30 for call-out fitters.
Covers accidental & malicious damage.
Doesn't cover the first 10 of any claim & no claims allowed in the first 30 days.
Runflats are definitely covered- I made sure!
Have a look at the website info for the small print.

I'm assuming BMW offer more than that in their deal?
