No myths involved, just observation of thousands of tire fitments over the years.
Funny. You actually ran a tire store but messageboard heros will still argue against your experience lol. And, it's not like you're even selling anything...

Michelin is far and away the best tire brand.
Some manufacturers make better purpose tires (like Yokohama), but overall nobody comes close to Michelin!
