Just got new wheels yesterday for my 2018 GSA. I had tighten the spokes last october myself, but guessed at what 4Nm felt like, so probably I didn't torque them enough. There were 8 loose in the front and 10 in the rear.
Personally, I would have been ok with just tightening the original spokes as long as the run out stayed within tolerance. I am aware that BMW ops to replace rather than reuse due to the time involved in truing a wheel.
Put a set of Karoo 3's on while I was at it. Sir Fallsdown Alot had too many get off last fall running the ATV trails with the Anakee 3's. !2,000Kms on the Anakees and the rears were wishing 1.0mm of the wear limit, front still had lots of tread. Probably my hard downshifts contribute to the quick wear on the rear.
