Ran mismatched for a couple of months, then got 4 new 225/45/R17 Yokohama Avid Envigors. So far so good - they're quiet and grippy, and had the highest tread wear rating of anything on offer. Should...

I have 4 crappy Capitol 225/45/17's at the moment; they were new when I bought the car 15k miles ago. The fronts are fine, the rears are probably past 50% and wearing unevenly.

Anyone seen one like it for the M52/M54 ?

Yes; stock everything except for the speakers themselves, and the bolts to anchor the adapter plate to the door. (M4, I think they were ~16mm deep)
