I'm mega confused now then
Mine has got Goodyear Excellence on but I thought they had been put on by the previous owner cos I've never heard anyone ever say that the car comes with these on from new
Only thing is, I could have sworn they were W rated. I'd go and check but it's -6 outside!

QUOTE(davo1983 @ 18 Dec 2009, 02:41 PM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>mine are ZR rated, and these are the goodyear excellence supplied on the car when new, that means 149mph :confused:
It becomes a bit more complicated for 'ZR' rated tyres.
The 'ZR' denotes the tyres are rated to at least 149mph and possibly more. There is usually another letter after the load index that gives the specific rating, but this is not always stated ion the tyre. Some tyres you will need to look up the specific speed rating, all you will know by looking at tyre is that it is capable of speeds of 149 and above.

example: 225/40 ZR18 92Y

The 'ZR' denotes they are capable of 149mph and possibly above.
The 'Y' after the load denotes they are tested to speeds of 186mph.
