What I find odd is how Michelin rates the A/S 3 versus the Primacy MXM4, which is a "luxury performance touring" tire, in Michelin's own words.

In braking performance, Michelin rates the A/S 3 at an 8, and the MXM4 at a 10.

In comfort, Michelin rates the A/S 3 at a 10, and the MXM4 at a 9.

In handling, Michelin rates the A/S 3 at an 9, and the MXM4 at a 10.

All these ranking are backwards from what I would expect.
