Bought these because Continental ExtremeContact DWS were on back order. I am very happy with the wear and overall performance of these Yokos. Road noise was much better then the Goodyear runflats that were on it before and wet weather traction is great. Snow traction is marginal at best, but then again (and I don't care what tires you have) one should not be driving a RWD BMW 5 series with 245s in the snow. Wear is only now becoming noticable on the inside rear tires. Fronts still look like new! And by the way, I have NEVER rotated the tires. Rotating the tires would for sure extend the life. My guess is I probably have another 15k miles left before I have to buy a new set because of the rear tires. 45k miles from of a set of performance tires is not bad! Great tires for a sport seden!!
