That's not how it works. A diff. of 19 miles
per hour from H to V? Tires are not bought just
by a persons driving habit but by the Horse Power.
If you drive a car with 200+ horsepower then you
should be in a V rated tire whether you drive slow
or not. When the HP goes up then the car is fitted
with a better braking system, better suspension, shocks,
etc. to accomodate the HP. You have to buy tires according
to the car's capabilities. If you drive an economy type
car an H tire is good enough and that type of car
shouldn'tbe driven at 130 mph (or even 100 for that matter)
even if the manufacturer makes that claim. Drive safe and
drive according to the car's capabilities.
