I too have a full set with tires/TPMS. The rear tires definitely need to be replaced though and two of the wheels have a bit of rash. I'll get pics if you're interested.

Turns out I'm an idiot. I had loosened the caliper bolts on the first side I did to be able to get the pads in and never re-tightened them. They were nearly a half inch out :eyebulge:
