I simply had the regular wheels. I doubt that they changed the tires since I was waiting over a week for them to bring the car from the port. I expected bridgestone tires since every car in their lot (including the one I test drove) had those on. Are these tires of less quality? I'm headed towards the dealership cause the car vibrates a bit more than I remember when taking the test drive. Could the tires be the culprit?Originally posted by TEG:
That is interesting - I didn't know the factory was using that tire. Did your car by chance have non stock (e.g. "Chromed" wheels)? Perhaps the dealer made the swap...
