Presumably you would have to carry a passenger, since this is a passenger car warranty!

Michelin's calculation that you can double your mileage by rotating seems pretty optimistic.
This is exactly right. M3's with staggered setups that buy Pilot Super Sports will have 30K mile warranty on the front, and 15K mile warranty for the rear. Reimbursement is prorated, so let's say you got 1/2 the stated mileage, you would receive a 50% credit through the warranty.

30K for the fronts seems a tad optimistic, but we'll have to see how it goes. As long as the fronts are lasting 25K or so, their liabilities under warranty would be fairly limited.
