Most OEM tires suck. They are usually bought (exceptions would be particularly high performing cars) because they're cheap for the automaker to buy, not because they're the best ones.

I have had them on my Porsche, my RX 8 and multiple VWs and they suck.
My fault.  I don't learn my lesson. They suck.  I see the ads and think. "Hey. I need those".
And then they start being all sucky and then I think. "I will neverbuy another set of Pirellis.  Then
my owners manual, like on my Porsche, says "Heydumbass, go buy more Pirellis".  So I do and then they suck.

They sure do suck.

I had a few vehicles with Pirellis; they were very good.

Good move, I guess, but it probably still won't help Caterham and Vitaly Petrov get any points this season.

This could be very good or very bad for the annual calendar.
