What manual is this in? I have the BMW service manual, and never saw that.
I cannot imagine one wearing measurably, if so, it would probably look bad enough to be replaced in any case.
If you do want to measure them, you have to use a 1" micrometer. The portion you are measuring is only in the 2.8 MM range (around 1/8"), so a larger micrometer will not do it.
