Need a rear tire for end-of-lease, buy or swap for my Michelin Pilots?

Short short version:

I'm looking for at least 1 used Z4 stock rear tire to buy, at least 1/8" tread remaining - Bridgestone RE050A RFT 255/30-19. I'd prefer to buy this locally, and might have a deal to swing if you continue reading...

Long version:

My lease is coming due in 45 days and I need to return the car with the stock tires at least 1/8" on all sides. I have three stock tires, but my 4th one was demolished by a bolt and I replaced the whole set with Michelin Pilot Super Sports. My remaining rear runflat is exactly at 1/8", so I'd replace it as well if I found another used one is slightly better condition. I figure somebody out there must have at least one tire laying around from swapped tires or cracked wheels

As such I'll either buy one or two used rear Bridgestone RE050A RFT 255/30-19 tires, or I can make a trade deal on my full set of Michelin Pilot Super Sports, as I won't be needing them after I return the car.

The Michelin's are in good condition, 1/4"+ tread on all corners. If we go this route, I'd expect stock tires + cash from your side, but I'll work a good deal for you so I don't have to keep these tires around. Also, these tires have road damage replacement coverage on them, but I'm not sure off hand if that's transferable.

Anyways, let me know if you have some used rear tires laying around and we'll talk
