question about Azenis RT-615 and its traction rating

ok, so the RT-615 is 200 treadware, A traction and A temperature. why would a tire this sticky, supposed to be like damn near race tire only be A while my proxes 4 are AA.

AA is better then A so it just don't make alot of sense to me. something as sticky as the 200 treadware rated RT-615 should be 200-AA-A right?

traction rating is how well the tire is able to grip ... in the wet...

I have a set of r compound racing tires that are basically slicks .. they have a traction rating of C... go figure

anyways the Azenis are not a racing tire ... if you never push them they will last a very long time when compared to a racing tire racing tires even if you don't push them on the street will where out very quickly...

I have seen racing tires with Dot approval with a rating of 00 for treadwear.. the ones I have have a rating of 30 or 50 or 80 depending on the set of tires you look at.

I hope that makes sense any other questions?
