It's a specification for Brazil. Has a TBN requirement of >11 and must pass additional ethanol corrosion tests. It's nothing like 504/507

The thing about handling is that I never approach the limits of my tires' performance envelope in dry or wet conditions. The only time I ever come close to the limits of what a tire can offer in terms of performance is in ice or snow where it is easy
