Wow, so I'm seeing posts from September 2014 talking about Java's demise. Has he really been gone that long?!

Mustangs sure have come a long way since then, right?

I think the softer rubber of the extreme high-performance summer tires is naturally more dull than regular tires. (I actually kinda like it).
