Can't rotate Tires... wear out faster?

With m-sport package you get tires that are wider in the back. Therefore, you can't rotate them.

Do these tires wear out quicker or does BMW have a trick to keep the tires from doing so?

Staggered wheels provide better grip. Once the rears are finished then replace them same for the front. there is no rotating. If you are that concerned about tires then you probably should look into one of the other lines with 18" wheels they are not staggered

I live near you and would be happy to trade you my 18" Sportline rims/tires for yours.
