If one changed with extra clearance rod bearings (assuming thereís no wear now)..is there way to track metal wear from main bearings?

Hard to say without more reports to compare to. The iron at 12 seems high, but that might just be the norm for your motor.

Wow, impressive -- no change in wear metals over 3 years and over 50k miles.

Main bearings use the same material as rod bearings.

FWIW, my lead readings have dropped to zero after changing to BE (which are lead-containing)

Two track days, daily driving, winter storage, then daily driving duties again followed by two days of driving about 1000 miles per before the oil change. Not bad overall for the Rowe.

Previous oil analysis was on the Liqui Moly 10W60. Next one will be on the BMW-Shell oil with BE bearings.
