Default John Pearse/Thomastik-Infeld Folk Strings

I am intrigued by these strings so a question for those that tried them on their classical/hybrid guitar.

Did you have any intonation issues on the G/B/high E strings. The gauges of the JPTI stings is totally different from a set of normal Classical strings. For instance, I use Savarez 500AJ Alliance/Corum high tension strings on all my nylon string guitars:

High E: JPTI: .016
Savarez: .0252

B String: JPTI: .024
Savarez: .0280

G String: JPTI: .025
Savarez: .0339
