Oh, and Ben, just to be sure you know where I'm coming from don't take my reply in any way personally, just being honest. I know you're being honest as well.

Btw, I seriously believe your company had a confounding factor for the 30% increase in wet weather traction , considering the PS2 had the best wet weather traction in the world a couple years ago ALREADY, it would be nearly impossible for the chemical engineers to have come up with rubber with that kind of improvement. That's quite the claim.
Certainly there is some variability given that the tests are not done on the same day. However even with that taken into account the difference is a lot more than the 1-5%. Having had the chance to personally test both tires at the limit, I can safely say that the difference is substantial.
