Brembo Tires & Go Pros

First, what is the difference between the 3 different, and yet seemingly identical, Pirelli P-Zero Max Summer Performance Tires? On Tire Rack.com there are 3 "different" Pirelli tires with the same name and specifications for Brembo cars.

I know that the Brembo cars take the OM or "Original Mercedes" versions, but what is the difference between those and the AO "Audi Original" tire that looks identical? Or the "blank sidewall" tire that also looks identical?

Also, Walmart is selling Go Pro HDs with the 32 gig card for $200.

I can't even begin to point out the fail in this post.

The 3 "identical" Pirellis all have different speed and load ratings. Get some glasses dude.

The differences between the MO (not OM) and AO versions is the cars that they are on. They aren't that different really.

You could have just answered the question without being an ass.

I could thank you for your answer, but I won't.

FWIW, my dealership is getting me the OMs for $340 a piece, installed. I consider that a great deal, because the dealership will refinish my wheels if the scratch them during the install process. I've had mucho trouble around here finding places that are willing to install tires AND gaurantee they won't scratch my wheels.

Car and Driver recently tested these tires, but they didn't rate very high. Someone with BBP wrote a letter the next month- questioning the results. According to C&D we have the Mercedes version, and they had tested another version in their comparison.

My dealership's Service Manager got my tires in. It took a few days, as he was origingally sent two "AO" tires, instead of the correct "MO" trires. It really is nice to work with the head-honcho....he set me an actual appointment, with a certain wheel & tire tech he trusts to mount my tires and not scratch my wheels.

$340+tax a piece, mounted and balanced.

Can't beat that.
