Hope you bought an extended warranty with tyre and wheel policy. Other than that, I don't think BMW will cover the tire. (I got my first K1600GTL flat with 2900 miles on it and my extended warranty cover the new tire.)

I purchased with the bike, but I believe you can purchase it after the fact.

They may cover the tow, but not sure about the tire.

The tire is on you and your insurance. I am sure it is below your deductible.

Your mentioning the "low" mileage on your bike holds no merit.

No bike maker, auto or truck maker for that matter covers tires. Tires carry their own manufacturer's limited warranty. A flat tire by any means is considered a roadside hazard. Only if you can show the tire suffered deflation due to a manufacturing defect related issue, can you obtain any satisfaction....and that is one long shot.

You should have purchased a rim & tire insurance policy, which you can still do for future coverage. Replace the tire and get back to enjoying your bike. It is actually a very minor event in the big picture. These things happen.

Also, consider carrying a tire quick plug kit and a Cycle Compressor or CO2 cartridges so you can better deal by yourself with standard punctures while out on the road. As many of us know, it is no fun being stranded waiting for assistance.

Repairing a flat is a 10 to 15 minute operation, as I have done this many times on a GS and GSA.

For towing, I prefer the Good Sam program because out west it can be a very long way to the closest dealer. They have unlimited mileage towing.
