Alternatives to Mini Tire N' Wheel protection

Am I insane, or does $1,595 sound like a lot for wheel and tire protection on a 2015 Countryman? Actually as high as $1,995 with cosmetic coverage. For the record I paid $595 for my 2010 Clubman, 3X sounds a bit steep no?

Does any have any experience with other coverages available out there, especially one that does not have to be purchased through the dealer?

Ive found the dealers really try to push to sell these add on guarantees, I never bother as from past experience when you make a claim they say "Oh that bits not covered for that" even though you were lead to believe it would be when you took it out, and try their uptmost then to get out of paying out.
Like most guarantees cheap ones arent worth the paper they are written on and expensive ones means youre just about paying out what a repair would cost anyway.
