Need to replace the tires on my '98 SLK 230. Original tires were V-rated. What would be gained (or lost) by going to a Z-rated tire?<br>
Thanks,<br>

..basic rules

I think these are some general 'rules' when it comes to the speed ratings.. Correct me if I'm wrong guys..<br> <br> The higher the speed-rating, the stickier (softer) the tires..<br> the stickier the tires, the better the handling (okay, so maybe not always)<br> <br> at the same time, thread will wear out faster... which is usually everyone's (everyone being the everyday driver who doesn't race or drive at illegal speeds) main concern.
