In Reply to: an example of this being faulty logic. posted by coky on July 31, 2001 at 16:26:49:

originally, Mz3's and m coupes were shipped with michelin pilot sports. these cars generated the 5.1second and .89g performance specs.

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?
