    I have Michelin Premiers and have been very satisfied. Probably as good a ride as you can get with that size tire. I would have preferred the Genny come with a tire with taller sidewalls for a smother ride but the 45s were part of the Lotus suspension "upgrade" for '15.

    It may not be an option to get the Contis. I only ended up with them due to 2 defective sets of the MXM 4s.
    If your dealer wont do Contis, see if the Michelin Premier A/S is an option. It rates very close to the Contis, and IIRC, may have superior tread life.
    If you are forced into the MXM4, you can always check with Discount Tire to see if they can hande the recall. You may have to pay a small amount for labor or balancing. Others have reported that Discount Tire could handled the swap for Contis. There could be some small price difference, but not a big deal if you want to insist on the Contis.

    Regarding the MXM4s.... other than the balance and vibration issues, the tire was fine, and I drove a loaner that had no problems with the MXM4s. Many users have them with no complaint, but they have also seemed to be one of the more common factors in vibration.

    Not sure how this is handled. BF Goodrich, Continental and Michelin have some great options. Check out the Tire Rack site.

    You will have to go to a store like Discount Tire to get the Continentals.

    Can you elaborate on the end of the recall. My 2015 3.8 ultimate has the original hankooks on. I was at service recently for oil change and we specifically talked about holding off on the tire swap. I was under the impression I had quite a bit more time before this recall entitlement ran out (do recalls ever really expire anyways ) ?

    The dealer just replaced all four Michelin Primacy MXM4s on my car with a brand new set of Michelin Primacy MXM4s due to severe vibration issues - after 100 miles on the new tires, the vibration is coming back.

    Given how many people have reported issues with these tires, and my personal experience with two brand new sets, I will refuse to have these put on my vehicle again. I don't want these tires for free, I certainly wouldn't pay for them.

    Stay away from the Michelin Primacy MXM4s for the Genesis sedan - they might work well on other vehicles, but there are plenty of people who have issues with this specific tire, and I would avoid getting these at all cost.

    My MXM4's are wearing rather quickly and I will probably need to replace them soonish. With 14k miles, and no rebalancing, they are still very smooth and do not vibrate. I have had them rotated once.
    Since my car is a lease, I will probably opt for something cheap, like the Barum Bravuris (110 USD), maybe the Yokohama Envignor (150 USD). Most certainly not the MXM4s (200 USD), since they are severely overpriced for what they are.

    consider the BF Goodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S. Excellent experience with my prior car (Taurus SHO). Have the same compound as the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+, but different tread pattern.

    Thank you (150 USD for a w rated tire!), i like unidirectional tires, and good reviews on Tire Rack.
