Lincoln should of course publish the OE tire specs somewhere...that being said...
With all the automakers that allegedly send "ringers" into the test fleet (the first WRXs cracking off 97 MPH trap speeds, for example), I just don't find tires to be that big of a deal.
It's not a hidden performance adder. It's written on the car, in plain view.
I understand the issues everyone has...but I don't know...something about this isn't such a big deal to me.
***Again, I see very little difference between this, and cars that have a "factory option" of PSCs, or other high(er) performance tires.
Come on, in reality, what is the difference between a factory-stamped "dealer-installed option", and dealer-installed aftermarket tires?
That one is a check box on a form with a Ford logo, and the other is made on a form with the Dealer logo?
So long as the public is informed, I see no issue.
