So, being more interested in the premium model due to it having exactly what I need/want and isnt missing anything important led me to do a little research into the stock Michelin Primacy tires that come on the 17" rims that the Premium model come with. Long story short: These Primacys are apparently NOT that good at all - even in dry, ideal conditions for a summer tire. That kind of sucks. I realize I can swap them out but thats a $1,000 or close to it. hate to feel like you have to change tires right off the showroom floor though. With so many choices, I wonder why Subie picked these out? Sort of frustrating, IMO.
