More extreme conditions require better tires. If you plan on
driving at low speeds and stay away from testing curves at
high speeds then you will be okay. Also factor in temperature
extremes on your tires. If you drive in 100+ deg. temps then
you will add additional stress on the tire. An H tire is fine for
everyday driving if you keep to the speed limit. I have had a tire
literaly crumble at 110mph+ in 115 deg. temp. (driving for about an
hour)The tire was so hot that it couldn't be touched to remove it .
Under these extreme conditions you wouldn't want less then a VR or Z
rated tire.
