To add a bit...Z's and V's tend to be softer comppounds, which means better handling and usually shorter treadlife. In addition, Z's and V's usually have stiffer sidewalls to be able to handle the higher speeds...which in turns helps handling just like a stiff suspension does. But in the end, what carlos said is right on...my car had T rated tired on it when i got it, which were technically rated too low for it....but they were fine, and I never beat my car hard enough to push into the danger zone. So if you don't commute in triple digits, don't need super top cornering (which by the way, could also be improved if you went +1 or +2 in tire size) and actually want a bit of a softer ride found in lower speed tires....
So I hope that helps a little more...
