    I work for Discount Tire, YK's are great tires, yet they don't last too long. The Falken STZ/04's will last the longer of the two. From personal expirience, my YK's lasted 18k (225/40/18).

    The grabber's aren't a bad tire, but you can only rotate front to rear, whereas with the YK's, you can get 4 corner rotation, which promotes the most even wear.

    I presonally don't like Toyo's, but to each their own. Go with the Falkens. if you don't like them, you have a 30 day ride guarantee, so put the YK's on

    ok sounds like a good idea. and with that 30 day garuntee do they mount the other tires for free?
