I have the 5.0 with AD so will admit I am wild in the corners and off ramps thus contributes significantly to my wear report.

Note I have a 4Runner running Goodyear wranglers with Kevlar belt. Quiet at 4-5 mm, good wear, and like Velcro. Aggressive tread would look cool on x5, especially with black walls. Alas, no fit options. Probably take the fun out of AD anyway.

Such are the wages.
Make sure your alignment is OK, because the Pirellis will cup if either tire pressures or alignment are off.

How is the M5 treating you? I was in the Pinetree chapter a few years ago, and I am pretty sure I remember you getting it. I had the Carbon Black E39 M5. I sold mine with 103k mi on the odometer and it was still working pretty well.
