That is all I am seeing on the photos from overseas - Michelin Primacy HP. Summer tire, low tread-wear, maybe 12,000 miles. They also appear to asymmetric as well a simple front-to-back rotate a couple times then dispose.I think this is what we'll get http://www.tirerack.com/tires/BigPic.jsp?sidewall=Blackwall&tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Primacy+HP
Maybe because Michelin says:So it's gonna be the 215/45 R17 Michelin Primacy HP? Can someone explain why they are using summer tires?
Maybe because this is a RWD car, meant PRIMARILY for either summer driving, or for people who live where those kind of conditions are predominant.This summer tire delivers precise wet and dry handling and is original equipment on luxury touring vehicles like Lexus GS 430, Mercedes E-Class and Audi A6.
