I purchased a 2017 cayenne platinum from dealer last week. It comes with Goodyear R20 tires.
A Firestone manager told me today: New cayenne should have Pirelli's tire, not goodyear.
I asked the dealer, she claimed all new cayenne use Goodyear now.

I am in California. Need help.
Thanks

    What do you need help with?

    Why would a Firestone manager know what OEM tire comes on a new Porsche?

    All four tires? I don’t have a Cayenne, but most make/models use more than one brand, so they don’t ever get caught in short supply.

    Since the Firestone store doesn’t likely sell either brand, I’d just chalk that conversation up to ignorance.
