Speaking of crappy suspension...my first top speed run was made on T-rated tires (good to 11 and I had a broken stabilizer link.....needless to say it wasnt the most stable drive...

I don't know what mine are rated for. Rated for suck perhaps. Oh well, scared the **** out of me. Never going to do that till I replace some shocks. By the time I can afford suspension stuff, I'll have gone through 5 sets of tires..

its rated 110 for a reason. Thats probably the speed limit of your tires. You will need higher rated tires if you want to go faster.

I found out coming down 35E into the Burnsville split that my bonnie floats sideways a lil lot at 97 mph. On a gradual left hand turn. But I think the alignment may have something to do with that. I think I may need more down force seeing how I moved my leveler bar to get a lil more of a rake out of it. 115 on a kinda rough straight country road........A lil bumpy but solid. That'* my 2 cents

Its usually in the tire size....i.e. 225/60TR/15....or 225/60HR/16 and sometimes 225/60/16 95H or 225/60/16 95T

The letter is for your speed (or as I like to call it performance) rating

or on an older SSE Bonne tire sizes being 215/60/16
newer SE Bonnes used 215/65/15s and 225/60/16s
2000+ Bonnes used 225/60/16s and 235/55/17s unless its a GXP then its a 235/50/18!

I knows my tayahs.....its my bizznass


*=112mph
T=118mph
H=130mph
V=146mph
Z=146+mph
there are underratings for Z rated tires such as W and Y
W is for up to 168 mph Y is 186+ I believe......Ive got W rated tires on my Bonne...and dont see myself going anywhere near 168 mph!
