Toyo RA1 treadwear rating?

The new Toyo RA1's (275/40ZR17) that arrived today have a treadwear rating of 100 vs. the 40 that normally is indicated. Anybody know if there was a compound change...or if Toyo just adjusted the rating? Just curious.....

We discussed this with Toyo last year at SEMA and they said it was only a rating change to reflect how the tires compare to others in the class. The compound is the same and the rating is apparently a pretty arbitrary deal and doesn't mean a whole heck of a lot.
