Thanks for that. I can't believe that I can't get official word on the tires that will come on the car. I'm hoping that, given winters in North America, that the all-seasons will be M&S. Presumably BMW/Alpina will put premium tires on a $125K car.

I'm not really sure why, but a lot of cars that come from Japan have really old tires. Even if the tread is in good shape the tires are old and cracking, so they need to be replaced.
