Tyre speed rating
Tyre speed rating is based on minimum standards for reaching and sustaining a specified speed. In general, a higher speed rating results in better car handling. There are two key warnings to be aware of when it comes to tyre speed rating.
It is both illegal and dangerous to drive with tyres that are lower than the recommended speed rating.
This can result in poor handling and unpredictable steering. There is no problem installing a higher speed rated tyre on your vehicle – this can improve cornering response.
