Tyres seem to be cheaper in the lower speed ratings. Is it an acceptable thing to buy a lower speed rated tyre that is listed in the handbook? eg, my 210 says v rated in the handbook (from memory). This means up to 149 MPH. There's no way that I'm ever going to get close to that speed. In fact, I can't even remember the last time I got up to 80! So, is there any reason why i should not choose a cheaper lower speed rated tyre? Are the higher speed rated tyres built stronger to cope with higher torque and acceleration as well as ultimate top speed?
