Michelin is basically creating a new class of tire -- extreme performance all-season -- it would appear. It's going to be interesting to see the test results.
Yes, I heard it's better than the DW in the dry from the subjective testers invited to the Michelin event.
Extreme Performance all season is an oxymoron since it's not really extreme at any one particular thing but meant to be good at everything. It's more comparable to the Max performance summer tires than the Extreme ones which focus almost exclusively on dry performance for street tires.
We don't need any more categories though
