I wouldn't be surprised. Auto manufacturers buy a single model of tire in massive quantities. It's not like they buy them off the shelf. They buy them from (in this case Yokohama) at a price point and with requirements for pressure, ride quality, load, etc. The price trumps everything, though. OE tires have a lousy reputation for a reason.

Like the Bridgestone RE92 that came on the GD Impreza that everyone despised. Cheap, performed poorly in most conditions (including dry) and wore quickly.
