Yokohama YK-520 tires.

Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

I went to my friendly America's Tires to purchase some new Michelin Primacy MXV4's for my 9-5. They were out-of-stock in my size. So I asked about the Exalto - also out. Costco is out of stock too. America's Tires told me my other choice, Yokohama S.Drive will wear too fast (UTQ of 300) but is an awesome Summer Tire. They insisted I would be happy with the Yokohama YK520's that several here have also recommended. The UTQ is 520, with a 60K warranty. Made special for America Tires/Discount Tires and not typical Yokohama as the YK520 is made in USA. Non-directional tire which the Sales Guy said will track better than a directional tire. Hum? Anyway, they said I would be pleased with these tires over the Michelin series and the S.Drives. Price increases so now a set of YK-520's installed is $586 with road hazard insurance. And that was me trying to beat on them. Should I try these? Will a 60K tire ride too hard? Should I order the Michelin's and move on? They also told me 30 days to return them if I don't like them.
