Tire Concern:what happens if I use 94H tire instead of 93V?
I have a 2009 Lexus ES350 requiring new set of four tires. OE is 215/55/17 with 93v.
I found a tire $27 cheaper per tire but 94H instead.
I do not drive fast, is that going to be a problem for me?
I am very interested in quite comfortable ride mostly.
Oddly enough although H and V are quite far apart in the alphabet, they are not that far apart in Speed Ratings. The V rating is for speeds up to 149mph while H is up to 130mph, or the next step down.
If, as you state, you are not a fast driver and a maximum speed of 130mph is not likely to be driven by you then you can likely get by with this lower rating.
The load rating of 94 rather than 93 is a plus since it is a slightly higher rating, so you can throw a few extra watermelons in the trunk without thinking twice about it.
