The DOT (is it?) rating really doesn't mean a thing. Hoosier slicks (or 
so I think) has "C" "C" rating with tradwear of "0".

THe problem is that the D60A2 is a four seasons tire -- another words, 
Jack of all trades and master of none.

If you're serious about driving, then keep a good summer tread tire and a 
good snow-only tire.
