Yokahama YK580 Tires

Just replaced my Michelin Latitude RFTs on my 2011 X5D. Tires had 35,000 miles on them and still had some tread. I found the ride on these tires quite harsh even on 18" wheels. I switched to the new Yokahama YK580 non run flat tires. Considerably smoother ride with impressive handling. The tires are V rated with a XL (extra load) rating. Therefore, the sidewalls are less compliant than the Conti DWS. Mileage has increased from an observed mixed 24 mpg to 27 mpg. These Yokos come with a 60,000 mile warranty. They are available exclusively at America's Tire and Discount Tire chains. I purchased them in size 255x55x18 XL for $168.00 per tire.
