HELP: Recommendation on Used Dunlop Winter Sport 3Ds?

I am looking at buying a set of used Winter wheels & tires for my 335i Sedan (non sport package) (don't want to pay dealership prices).

Someone is advertising a set with one winter and about 8,000 miles on them.

Dunlop - Winter Sport 3D 225/45R17 94V
ASA - JH3 17 x 7.5 5x120 32mm

They look very clean and I like the seller online (seems very straightforward).

Questions:

Will they fit?

How much life would be left in the tires?

Should I be concerned about running non-RFTs?

Many thanks for your advice.

Fit = no problem.

Should be 75% life left in those tires.

Concerned about running non-runflats? I wouldn't be - throw an Airman compressor/sealant kit from Canadian Tire in the trunk and be happy. Ride quality will improve.

I own the exact same setup for my 325i. I was very impressed with the winter traction...definately recommend those tires. The only thing I would double check is to make sure the 17" clears the brakes on the 335i.
