The 5ers have the worst tire tread ware of all the BMWs combined. I think you better just find some tires that you like because even ware is your last concern.

Thanks! I'm sort of "old school" and like the thought of flip-flopping (left to right to left) my tires. Your suggestion is about what I've come to - newer tires in the sizes I need that are non-directional are like the proverbial "hen's teeth!" I've actually had pretty even wear so far so I guess I'm lucky in that regard - I just hate the thought of dropping $200.00 or so to the dealer for a fresh alignment. Still looking for a competent shop with a better price.
Dimentions for sizes near 255/40R17s (rear) look too much bigger for comfort so I'll stick with stock. On the front, the dimentions for 245/45R17 look very similar to stock. Any experience with slightly different sizes?
