Question around buying a used winter tires set

Hi all,

I found a set of used winter tires and rims for my 2018 bmw m240 (not x drive). These used tires are a square setup - size 225/45/18 on staggered rims. 7.5 width for fronts and 8 inch width at the back. They apparently came off m240 so should be okay but wanted your thoughts before pulling the trigger. Thanks again!

check the wear status. If it's around 4/32 or below, then those tires are pretty well done (well, for safer driving and traction wise). Therefore, buying a new set would be more economical, IMO.

check the year of production. If it's 4+ yrs old, I would prefer not get them as the rubber compound would have degraded over time and you may not be getting the optimal traction in extreme cold condition
