All seasons are almost universal here.

Honestly any time I get a rental in London and it rains I might as well be driving on slicks. there is no grip to talk of at all.

Pretty much all cars here in the US have all-season tyres. Half the country has snow, so summer tyres wouldn't stand a chance. I have a friend who couldn't drive his Accord Coupe with summer tyres in the snow. The Civic Si comes with optional summer tyres, but that's for people who live down south where it's warmer.

Then why not buy 4 summer AND 4 winter tyres?
Anyone who has cash to buy luxury car, has enough money to buy 4 more tyres :S

Hell, I can't afford new car, but still my Civic has 4 summer & 4 winter tyres...

Why bother switching tires based on location and time, when many people couldn't be bothered to even know where the oil cap is or how to do simple maintenance.

Some of the newer high-performance all-season tires are actually not that bad and are pretty nice to have if you live somewhere fairly cold in the spring/fall and can get some snow during those months. Also, if there usually isn't too much snow where you live in the winter, all seasons sure beat snow tires on cold, dry roads. Most snow tires I have had have great traction but really suck to drive on.

I am not sure a big, heavy, relatively soft luxury car really needs super aggressive tires anyway. Not saying that summer tires wouldn't handle better than all-seasons just saying a good all-season tire does have some benefits, and some actually handle/grip pretty good. I have experience with some of the more recent Bridgestone and Michelin "performance" all-season tires; for example, I think RE960's and 970's actually handle better then some summer-tires I have had in the past. Tires have come a long way in the last several years.

Since the Accord Touring comes with Michelin Primacy MXM4 tires, I'm certain that the RLX will have the same. The Primacy MXM4 is Michelin's best all-season tire to date. Extremely highly rated by Tire Rack during comparison testing and by user reviews.

I put them on my 2007 Camry V6. They handle superbly in dry, wet, and snow.
