Question Non-directional tyres as substitute for Yoko A539s?

I hope the subject says it all. I'm looking to replace the 205/65/15s on my wagon (don't push it hard enough to need wider), and everyone raves about the Yoki's combination of wet handling, noise, reasonable wear (40k?) and price. However, the major drawback as far as I am concerned is their directionality, meaning no rotation. So is there a slightly less upmarket Yoki that I should be shooting for, or should I be looking at some other brand?

They are asymetrical. Meaning that they need to be mounted on the rim with the indicated side facing outwards. Then they can be mounted on any axle.

There's a bear in there.

I hope they are better then the yokis i have on my EL, i *think* they are A360 or 630 or something, they came first in a wheels tyre test earlier this year, and the wet handling is rubbish on them, i can drift it going round a round about doing about 20-kph on a mildy damp road, and the road noise is terrible, they are one tyre i will never buy again.

just my 2c, as i say hope those tyres are better then mine
