like Carbon Fiver said, % of depth remaining is completely different from % of depth you can legally have.

Wear on the S04 has been similar to other tires in its category. Some may get more, some may get less, but a rough average has been around 20,000-25,000 miles.

245/45R18 is much too tall of a tire size. Stick with 225/40R18 with that wheel size.

Likely that wheel is sold by BMW as part of a winter wheel and tire package, and the "only for winter use" is simply poor wording/translation.

Even the non cryo treated versions are worth using. Not quite as durable but in our experience certainly better than OE rotors.
