Don't believe the hype. V rating is bogus and a waste of money. The Dunlop is rated #1 by Consumer Report. It has excellent dry and wet traction and should outperform the Michelin MXV4 Greens. The D60A2 is a more performance oriented tire than the Michelin which is a touring tire. The V rating means nothing. It just means the tire can tolerate the heat buildup from driving straight line at 149mph. The other side of the coin is this means the tire is made with a harder rubber compound. This will diminish traction at lower speeds.
