BZZZZZZZZZTTTTTT!!! (Boy I've been wantin' to do that for a long time!)
Eric, you may want to check your facts.  The D60 A2 is indeed the 
all-weather version of the tire.  The D60 M2 is a directional, soft 
compound version (boy did those things pull hard for that 10K miles!!!).  
Much like a little brother version of the D40 M2.  Of course, you've 
probably never driven anything wimpy enough to need 60R/14's.
