Tire Tread Depth Concerns for Xdrive

Vehicle: 2013 335i Xdrive F30

I recently went to the dealer to get an oil change and they brought up a concern on my tread wear across all four tires. They claimed there was a difference of 2/32" between my front left and rear right tire, and that this could potentially screw up my drivetrain considering it is a 4-wheel drive car.

I went to measure the tires myself and the following are my measurements (outer / center / inner):

FL: 4/5/6
FR: 4/5/6
RL: 5/5/6
RR: 5/5/6

I feel there is still have plenty of tread left but my question is whether I should be concerned with these measurements to be damaging to my drivetrain or anything else on my vehicle?

Thats not going to affect it much at all. They are just trying to upsell you tires.

That is a crock of DOO-DOO-CACA! Personally, after that experience, I would avoid them like the plague! Dishonest!

Staggered setup on my 435iX, rear tires always wear faster than fronts, let the rears wear to point where replacement is necessary (even though fronts are still OK) & I have never had a problem with x drive
