I'm getting off-topic here, but to counter your point...that's like saying the GMC Yukon is GM's "luxury" SUV when compared to the Chevy Tahoe. Now perhaps GM does market the GMC brand as a luxury...

Based on info I got from Tire Rack, the Primacy MXV4 in the 215-55-17 tire size is H-speed rated--meaning it's rated to a maximum speed of 130 mph. Unless Michelin makes a Canadian-specific Primacy...

I did a simple test using the cruise control to see what kind of (indicated) fuel economy the ES gets at certain cruising speeds (65 and 70 mph)--what I did was to find a relatively flat road (i.e.,...
