The issue is OEM tires aren't the same identical tire that you get from tire shops.

They are "specially" designed, missing processes that give you the rated mileage, handling, etc of the actual model. Those are cheaper to make, and is why auto manufacturers get them spec'd in. Name on the sidewall is the same, but they aren't identical to something you'd buy at Tire Rack.
