Morning, have a look at the posting time /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/snore.gif

I have just migrated across having sold my A3 and got a sensible family car - ish.

Anyway, this 1.8 T Sport has V rated tyres on it. What rating should they be? I have looked in the owners manual and it doesn't tell me anything, my local stealer just want to sell me new tyres but won't tell me the info. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif

As far as I can work out, the V speed rating is upto 150 mph and the loading number is 91, all of which I will be well within the cars speed and weight. So, in short, does it need Z or W rated tyres on it or will it be OK as it is?

Thanks in advance
