The rears are surprisingly in really good shape.

Maybe I have the FWD X3 model
Seriously. I was quite surprised/disappointed by the limited distance I got out of these things. With the deeper tread I thought I'd get at least as much distance as the RFT's on my '06 330.

31,500 km = 19,573 miles for the non-metric folks so it sounds like we're in the same boat.

My tires definitely need changing though. I'd hesitate letting my wife drive them in wet weather at this point.
