Like any tire company, Yokohama makes good tires and some not so good tires. I had the YK520's on my Mazda6. This model was eventually replaced by the current 580's. The 520's were fine for a daily driver. They had good ride quality primarily due to their soft sidewalls but seemed to understeer more than I liked. As they wore they started to make a whining sound especially at lower speeds. They had a 65K mile warranty as well but barely made it to 40K miles. I used Discount Tires prorated warranty without any hassles and got some Conti DWS's. Hopefully the 580's are an improvement in performance and longevity over the older 520's.
