What Brand of Tire on Non-Sport 330?

I just wondered if the NON-SPORT 330's with the 225 45 17 tires seem to be coming from only one manufacturer.

What brands do other Non-Sport 330 people have?

It seems most Run Flat Tire problems are on the sport, high performance tires. However, this 225 45 17 is the same tire as used on two of the 325 sport pkg cars.

So, I'm trying to figure out if the 225 45 17's are problem tires.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

My car came with the
Continental ContiProContact SSR
(Grand Touring All-Season)
I thought the cars only came with bridgestones
so i was surprised.

I am not particularly impressed with the grip on this tire,
even though they arent sport tires, i feel like it should be better.
I may end up getting michelin ps2's.
