Default Original Tire speed rating?

On the Veronas what was the speed rating on the original tires that came with the car?


The ones on mine now are H-rated but they aren't the original and it seems like overkill.

H or T i think it was. Kind of sporty but common today.

btw thanks for the reply.

I ended up going with some T rated ones.


Story: I was going to go to the local Firestone and get Firehawk GTs (h-rated and $50 Home Depot gift card). I checked the price online and it was maybe $604 for all 4 installed. The day I was going to go (a Saturday) I checked before I left and it was about $740 for 4!! I don't know what that was about because the next Monday it was $560 for 4.

I ended up going to a Monro shop I could walk to and they had 3 options in stock. I went with Bridgestone Insignia 200se (or se200). A giant, positive difference from the tires that were on there (h-rated "Pro Meter" something or other). These new ones amaze me with their quietness and easier steering. Reviews on tirerack.com are mixed as far as snow traction goes but so far it's excellent.

Original Hankook Optimo K406 are V(90 load index) rated or upto 240KMh, becouse top speed of car is 200KM\h. T rate are for lover speed, like 190. For winter tires it is ok, but normali you shuld get H(210KMh) or above(U, V...) rated.

I'm still liking the tires I got - at least compared to the old Pro Meter ones. I am still noticing how much better it is riding.

Also, last year when I first got this car I measured the mileage a few times and always got between 19.5 and 20.5 mpg... Now I've done it again and am getting consistant 24.1 mpg - with less highway miles too!
