as you know michelin is a french company.
out of hte blue, bmw started shipping the M cars with dunlop 8080s. why? because dunlop tires (the 8080s are made in germany).
are they better, therefore?
nope. no one i have ever spoken to, or read, has said these were the greatest or better than pilot sports.
aesthetically, i see your point, but your a priori assumption is not always the greatest logic as far mixing nationalities and cars.
based on this, why would you buy a german-marque car made in the USA?
