I would definitely agree that new sticky Eagles vs old, hard pumped up MXV4 could explain a good chunk of the variation. In my cool climate, I further leverage the extra expense of my winter tires by running my all seasons down to just 3/32 since I am not battling the extreme elements. I would not do this if I ran only one set of tires - my limit is 5/32 going into a winter or off they go! This additional available tread wear saves me about 20% off the winter tires from the get go and I gain additional bonus bucks by the continuing increase in fuel economy as my all seasons wear down as past the 5/32 personal replacement threshold. This reduces operating costs while minimizing all season accident risk. My understanding is that dry "summer" braking is optimized with worn tires, ie. braking distances are minimized.
