I have run several sets of H rated tires. They are fine.

My name is Ken and I am a HP Junkie.

Did you buy all 4 or just one? If its just one, that would screw up your differentials.

The guy at the shop is an idiot if he thinks you can't put lower speed rating tires on a car than stock. My winter tires are NOWHERE NEAR H rated. Do they even make winter V rated winters? Wow.

What tires are they?

Unfortunately this is not unheard of. It is CMA for the shops so they don't get sued.

Situation: They sell H rated tires to some punk who had a car that came stock with V rating. Punk goes crazy on the freeway nd exceeds 130mph and a tire fails and he crashes. He can now sue the shop that put the tires on. Yay for a lawsuit happy America!


I know it seems rediculous but it is the way things are.
