What's the deal with the tire ratings at Tirerack

Most of the posts I've read indicate that contis wear far better than Pilots or S O3s. Also, it appears from most posters that from a grip point of view, that most prefer the Pilots and S O3s over the Contis.

I'm kind of suspect of the Wear ratings I'm seeing at the TireRack (higher numbers are better)

Pilots - 7.3
S 03s - 7.3
Contis - 5.4

Also, several posters have indicated that the S O3s and the AVS Sports are noisier than the Contis and yet the noise rating is as follows-(higher numbers are better)

S 03s - 8.4
AVS - 7.2
Contis - 6.1

What are your subjective opinions?
