Flat Tire Again

Got flat tire again on my E90 330i. 3rd time in one year. Last time i could not get my hands on the Bridgestone Runflats cause it was on back order so I purchased Continental Contisport Contact 3's all around. Loved the tires for about 6 months but happened again last night, passenger rear. Stopped as soon as i got the flat tire warning light and got the car towed to VOB. Now the dealer is telling me i need new rims cause it got bent in the process. They are quoting me $1100 for new tire/rim/balance. To make the long story short, I said F$#% it and bought 19inch Hyperblack CSL Rims from **********, which i wanted to get soon anyway. I guess things happen for a reason. In the meanwhile i have my friend's 18inch CSL rims to install on my car as a backup. Thank god. I guess i should move out of DC to avoid all the nails or change my driving style?

i sure do. I commute to DC everyday, live in MD suburbs and in a new development area with dirt/gravel everywhere from dump trucks. I guess i just have to stick with it and drive careful with my new 19's.
