Yokohamas for 2009 X5??

Hey All

About time for new tires (34K so far on the runflat OEMs). I now have the spare so I'll be buying non-runflats and am considering YK580s at discount tire. They have a really high rating (Best/4.5 stars) and are listed at 60K treadlife...They are not the cheapest tire but based on the rating and treadlife they seem like a good pick...That said the treadlife and ratings may be BS.

Any thoughts? Thanks...

I've had good luck with Yokohama tires on my passenger cars... they'd be on my short list of an X5 replacement tire.

Just got 4 Yokohama YK580s and ditched the runflats. The are much quieter than the bridgestone RFTs...

My x5 2012 is coming with 20inch run flats but never ordered a spare. Do you know if there is room in the trunck area to put a spare if I buy my own after the fact?

You should definitely have a well for the spare below the mat in the back. I spent about 400 for the spare and jack and based on what i paid for my yokos, i saved about $600 not buying the runflats and the yokos are alot quiter than the oem runflats. The only issue might be that you have 20s...I have 18s. I got my spare thru bmw to be sure i got one that worked. Prob more expensive though...
