Tire Brand?

Anybody who has taken delivery of a 2.3 with 19" wheels...what is the tire brand?

On the Lincoln-owned, early 2.3/19" MKCs they had Michelins. Seems the 2.0s have Continentals.

Curious if the 2.3/19" production units are running Michelins, or are they mixing it up?

Very curious to know this as well. Anyone know the tire size also? Width and profile?

I can't seem to find it listed on the website anywhere.

Awesome, thanks Tom!

Hopefully someone else here can answer the brand of tire question.

AWD: Michelin

Per the Lincoln MKC Product Trainer at the dealer today.

I would take the Michelin All-Season tires, please!

My next replacement tires will be Dunlop.

That is good to know. I was wondering how it was decided. The 2.3 AWD date night MKC had the Michelin's.

Mines are Michelin in the 2.3L 19".

I checked around, and they might be the best all-around in light snow for the price.

This is my ratings:
1) Michelin
2) Dunlop
3) Bridgestone

how bad does the snow get where you're located?
