    Higher speed rating on 1 new tyre?

    Wife (with baby in back) got a puncture/blow out yesterday on the passenger front. Luckily she was slowing down for a roundabout on a duel carriageway so she managed to pull in safely - could of been quite interesting at 70mph. She said there was a loud bang and then the TPS alarmed (so at least that works....)

    Went for the same brand as the car has only done 2.5k miles - Pirelli P Zero Rosso 225/45 17 (nice expense to start the weekend )

    However noticed this morning the new tyre has a higher speed rating of 'Y' when the originals are 'W'. I think this should be fine......or does anybody think this will cause an issue and I should take it back?

    Cheers,

    You are fine. W is 168mph and Y is 186mph. So stick to 168 and you're ok :D
