Can anyone tell me what the difference is between

Michelin Primacy Pilots

and

Michelin Primacy Pilots MO (Mercedes Fitment)

According to my local tyre place, he thinks they are the same and its just some marketing scam to increase the price....

Does anyone know?

Thanks

If he thinks that then he probably shouldn't be in the tyre business :rolleyes:.

The compound, load rating and sidewall stiffness vary dependent on manufacturer requirements.

I have heard it said the the MO is a softer compound that gives a better ride when selling the cars, I do know that the MO version have a shorter life than the standard
