Anyone else removed these terrible tires and have their vehicle completely transformed for the better?

I have purchased some different alloys to mount some existing Blizzaks I own, and they came with some Nitto Motivos. I decided to mount them and run them off until October when the snows will get mounted, holy cow is this a different handling vehicle. The heavy steering has been lightened considerably. The vague highway driving is much more precise; it doesn't get pulled by the ruts/troughs created by the trucks in the slow lane. And I don't know how, but they are softer over the bumps yet feel stiffer in the corners and therefore handle better. It just looks a little worse as they stocks are 19" while these are 18".

When looking at those Turanza EL42 reviews on various tire sites, others feel the same as I, these are terrible tires. Why does a manufacturer supply such a good vehicle with such sub-standard tires? How many more would they sell if they mounted a quality tire?
