I agree that V rated tires will be more stable at speeds of 90 MPH than
H rated tires, but just to set the record straight - H tires are rated
up to 130 mph and V upto 149 mph. Even the cheapo "unrated" tires are
spec'ed for 90 mph, not that I'd recommend doing those speeds on such
tires. S is rated for 112 and T up to 118 mph. Z is 149 mph and beyond.
