OK so they claim they want to compare "tires" and then they swap out the rims with each different set of tires as well... Someone needs to point out that's not comparing "tires" that's a tire/wheel combination test and they never even address the rim/tires size/weight differences at all.
Notice ALL the tires they showed lined up for the mustang were the same physical height, but the three tires for the BRZ the last tire was visibly shorter than the other 2 and surprise! they saw a marked improvement with the shorter tires.

BTW could this "little" driver be even more biased please?

The BRZ and FRS are both actually Toyota's simply wrapped in other name plates.

I could stomach no more and did not bother to watch the BMW runs.

This is useless drivel meant to only prod the sheeple out there into buying things...
