    Tyre loading number

    I have recently got hold of some O.E S-Line 5 spoke alloys and am looking to get some 235/40 x 18 tyres and the choice looks bewildering.
    Not just makes but loadings.......I have narrowed it down to 3 types : Pirelli P Zero Rosso's / PS2's / Dunlop Sportmaxx.

    The quandry is that all these tyres seem to have 91Y/95Y and 95Y XL which equates to the load the tyre can take. I currently have 17 inch 5 stars with 235/45's Dunlop 9090's and they have a load limit of 94 !!!!

    I contacted Pirelli and they said that the 1.8T Quattro S-Line had Rosso's with a loading of 91Y as standard, but that seems strange if the Dunlops are 94Y.

    Are there any advantages/dis-advantages of getting a tyre with a higher load rating ?

    Also, all you guys with standard 1.8T Quattro S-Lines, what is the loading number on your standard fit tyres ?

    Want to get this right as obviously it is a lot of money, and I keep getting conflicting advice from Tyre depots.

    thanks
