2013 Brembo with Goodyear Tires?

I just took delivery of my 2013 GT Premium Coupe with automatic transmission and Brembo brake package. I was expecting Pirellis but got Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar tires instead. P255/40R19 Treadwear 220, Traction AA, Temperature A.

Is this new for 2013? Anyone else get Goodyears on a '13 GT Brembo Coupe?

I imagine that they will last longer than the Pirellis so I'm not upset at the switch.

On `11- 12 Cars the Goodyears were OEM on Brembo Convertibles.

The only reason I could think of for the 2 different tires would be because of a weight rating.. But the V-6PP cars coming with them doesn't follow that pattern. The Goodyear Summer tires were OE on the GT500 as well.

Maybe the factory ran short on the normal Brembo coupe tires and rather than hold up production used the Goodyears. If you have ever been to the assembly line tires come down a conveyor which is matched to the cars options. Someone could have grabbed the tires for the convertible coming behind yours on the line.
