run flat tires

I am new here so apologies if this as already been answered. I bought my first BMW car 2 months ago (used 2016 760I X Drive) I took a trip to SC and blew two of the Bridgestone run flat tires while there. At night I hit a large chuckhole
( 1 inches deep & about 6" across). Right front and right rear blew the sidewalls out. The only replacements I could get were Pirelli P 0's so I replaced all 4 tires. This week went to Florida and as far as I know didn't hit anything more serious than normal road rash and small cracks. The right front again blew out the sidewall and I limped into the nearest BMW dealer who replaced the tire with another Pirelli P 0. My car has the 20 inch wheels. I knew this was going to be a expensive car to drive and maintain but damn this seems ridiculous. My Corvette has 20" run flats and never had a problem so far.

Any experience or advice appreciated.

Sounds like just bad luck. Did you get the wheels checked for any cracks or sharp edges? I know on my F10 M5 I had similar incidents but I was riding on low profile 21s. On my G12, it's been solid. Same for my Hellcat.

Yes I had the BMW dealer check the wheels and alignment. No wheel problems
