Every time you downgrade speed rating you are losing road grip and handling. More the speed
rating is high stiffer the tread area and sidewalls are stiffer, the thing is stiffer the
tread and sidewall are less latteral distorsion occured, stiffer + less distorsion = less
heat build up, less heat build up = consistent performance. On the other way, there is
normally a longer tread wear on H rated than V rated, and v Rated better than Z rated.
I would say that v Rated for a Volvo is plenty enough, you'll get better millage, more
comfort ect..
