    Default tyre speed rating

    Ordered tyres yesterday and just realised I've ordered tyres with V speed rating instead of W. Should I send the tyres back or would they be ok on my vectra?

    so does that mean I'll be ok as long as I don't go above 149mph? lol I never go above 90 usually.

    you must not go below the listed speed rating for your car,the speed rating just does not mean about top speed but also acceleration and the weight of the car,plus if you fit a tyre with a lower speed rating and have an accident your insurance may not payout.if you are unsure of the correct speed rating contact a vauxhall dealer as they should in their epc list the original tyre size and speed rating

    how would you know if they used nitrogen unless you weighed them before & after. Would be a nice scam using compressed air, only £10 per wheel - save weight & fuel, roll up ...
