Unhappy Run Flat Tires

This is my first time on this site. I leased a 2017 Mini Cooper Convertible April 2017 and am now on my 5th tire. Several had bubbles which could not be fixed - one time was due to a crater on a major New York highway. I didn't give much thought to adding tire insurance at the time of my lease, but now regret that. Each time it cost me $300 from the dealer to replace [other tire places do not carry that tire - would have to be ordered]. Luckily the previous to last tire was still under warranty and now 2 months after replacing my last tire, that replaced tire is bubbled. Enough already.....could there be a defect in this run flat tire? Terrified to drive for fear of hitting a pothole or another bubble .....but I love my convertible -
