Bridgestones. Works out for me though, saves me from having to buy all-seasons for the winter. Now I can put that money towards real summer tires, as opposed to the Michelins.

Michelin Primacy HP. I assume the HP stands for HydroPlane...

I'll drive on them until winter, and then they go into the garbage. I'll get some better summers next year.

The bridgestones have terrible reviews and bad life duration.

They're Bridgestone Turanza EL400-02 tires. And yeah they're crap, but at least serviceable.

Bridgestones here as well. I understand why dealers up north put them on, but if they are just putting them on every car that gets shipped here over winter that kinda sucks. In other news I don't hate the Bridgestone tires as much as I thought I would, wasn't really expecting to be blown away by either dealer choice.

yeah i think thats how they are doing it. Dealers in the north get bridgestone all seasons for winter, and southern states get michelin. I may be totally wrong but that seems to be the trend.
