    Red face New tyre question

    I know its a bit silly thinking about it just now after Ive bought them but its bugging me

    Went down to a small tyre place this morning for 2 part worns as my rears were low and he had brand new Falken ziex ze 912, 215 55 16 93h tyres. After a bit of bartering I left with 4 Brand new fitted for £160 cash.

    Is it just me as i can't remember the rating i had before (94/97???) but is 93h too low for my weight its a 2.2 petrol elegance.

    Thanks

    Surely details would have been available on the previous tyres, and used that to make sure what was required?

    91H is the minimum for the Vectra C
    Personally, I would only use these to pass the cars final MoT and for car disposal

    For general use the minimum you require is 91W

    The speed rating takes into account long periods of high speed driving and how the tyre characteristics change

    You will notice the same differential between the vehicle maximum speed and tyre maximum speed on other vehicles
    As an example, a car with a maximum speed of 90mph still needs tyres capable of 120mph
