I read somewhere about tyre insurance provided by a mini dealer £100 for 2 years with max of 5 tyres cover. Sounds good value if 17" runflats are £200 a pop
Does anybody know more about this ie which dealer and who underwrites this- maybe all mini dealers should provide this
have you asked your dealer?

I've vaguely heard of this offer through MINI dealers but am not sure if it's available or not.

Sometimes some tyre manufacturers or distributors offer this, but be wary of the offer. One of the fundamental terms of the offer is that they'll only pay for the tread that's left - ie. if your tyre is 50% worn then you pay half towards a new tyre. If your tyre is at the legal minimum 1.6mm then they pay a big fat zilch! In effect you're paying to insure the remaining tread on the tyre.
