That said, the answer is that unless you are buying a high-performance car the OEM tires on new vehicles is generally terrible. Manufacturers don't see any sales benefit in using more expensive tires, so they go super-cheap, so you generally just don't want the tires they start off with.

I was pleased to find that VW puts Michelins on their new vehicles.

I've had some tire adventures myself, though. I had bought Dunlop snow tires which were excellent. I followed up the following spring with some Dunlop asymmetrical performance tires which were also excellent (though the feel of asymmetricals takes a little getting used to). But for some reason, the next time I bought performance tires, I opted for Yokohamas. I had heard lots of good things about them, so I gave it a shot. Unfortunately, after about 5 months of use, one of them exploded while I was driving. After putting the spare on, I returned home and began removing the remaining 3 to find that 2 others were very near exploding also. That was the end of my Yokohama purchasing. I've been very happy with all my Dunlops.
