On another note, I just read the complete thread and ther's been quite a bit of talk about speed ratings but haven't read what that speed rating actually means....
A "W" speed rating means the tyre is guaranteed to last 10 minutes at a speed of 168 MPH. That is for a fresh, undamaged, correctly inflated and aligned tyre.
I just go one rating above for my own cars: the giulietta has a top speed of 136 Mph so legally a V-rated tyre suffices but I fit minimally W-rated tyres, and nothing chinese either. I've had some 2000mAh chinese batteries that didn't even last as long as my old 1200mAh batteries....
