Tires and wheel warranty package?

Should I buy, for 899.00 the warranty fir 4 years for tires and rims in case a need to change a tire or a rim? I think that the chances of breaking/needing anew tire in 4 years is slim and even in that case, the price for a run flat is not close to 1000!

I am gonna have winter tires anyway for the ottawa winter travel so I will have 2 sets anyways! Should I get run Flat or regular winter tires+ rims?

$900 is very steep. I have the misfortune of having to commute into Toronto, which has roads comparable to the 3rd world. I hit a large pothole with my Accord after only having the car for 4 months. The tire blew immediately and the rim cracked. Total replacement cost was $1100 and another $300 for servicing the alignment and suspension. Took roughly 5 months for me to get a cheque from the city and even then they only covered the tire and rim.

If you do end up getting it, and by the end of the 4 years it remains unused, just drive over a bunch of nails and you've got yourself a set of brand new tires :p
