I sold these by the boatload when I was at Bavarian Autosport for twice the
price.  Didn't get any real complaints.  Be aware that Yokohamas tend to run
much wider than US and European brands even at the same "dimension."  Yokes
tend to "bow out" at the sidewall.  When pushing size limits on BMW's there
were more than a few cases where Pirellis and Conti's of the same size as the
Yokes would not interfere with suspension components when the Yokes did.  I
don't expect at all this to be a problem for you..just a fact to know. I installed
Bridgestone RE950's about a month ago which were exactly $100 more for all four
and I must say that I am impressed so far...especially in the rain...also pretty
grippy in the dry.  I don't push the wagon too much since Max is not pleased
about being thrown about the rear of the car ;-)
