Tyre Care and Maintenance: Speed Rating

 

How you can identify the correct speed rating for your vehicle 

 

The speed rating is the maximum speed your car tyre can safely travel and ensure your tyre can withstand the forces applied on it when accelerating, braking and cornering.  

It is vital to purchase tyres with the correct speed rating for both safety and insurance reasons.  You can find what tyre speed rating your vehicle requires in your owners manual, and can be found marked on the sidewall of a tyre. Watch the video below to understand more about tyre speed rating.
