Strange that? Wouldn't you say? It's almost like they were afraid that they're "premium winter tyres" wouldn't show much of an improvement over their best summer tyre (F1A2), so they used a midrange summer tyre instead...

Michelin did the same thing in their test, they used Michelin Primacy HP tyres, which are midrange tyres, and compared them to their best winter tyres. Why didn't they use Pilot Sport 3's instead?

I don't think i've seen a tyre manufacturer who tests their BEST winter tyre against their BEST summer tyre. I wonder why...
