tires on sports package - Runflat disaster?

So I might be pulling the trigger on an X1 tomorrow.

I'd be getting the sports package on the Xdrive 28i.

My question is:
How are the runflats?

Reason I'm asking is that I'm coming from an e90 with the 18 inch setup and bridgestone potenza.

At the moment, after replacing my whole set twice, I have 5 bubbles on 4 tires. It's not my driving, its the darn potholes here in Montreal.

Are the new tires as bad as the previous Potenzas?
They are known to bubble and stuff...

Thanks in advance guys!

ps: reason of the question is that I wanna know if I get the tire and wheel insurance or not.
pps: I do a lot of road trips to NY from Montreal and dont want to get stuck without a spare, so runflat is my only option...
