Speed rating of winter tyres

Recommended Posts

Is it as important as summer tyres for winter tyres to be ZR rated or will H suffice

If you do change the rating below the manufacturer's spec, then make sure your insurance are informed. Most tyres are rated way over the actual speed the car will generally travel at (@Bibs may be excluded from that statement) in which case the speed rating is more about the acceleration force (rather than weight which is load) they will experience, so depends if you'd be giving it full force on winter tyres.
