Skip the Pirellis.
I have used both V and H rated tires on all three of my cars.
The Dunlop D60A2 is OK, but boring. The BFG Touring T/A H rated
is pretty good, and probably the best of the H tires. I do
recommend the BFG Comp T/A VR4 though. Much better than any of
the H tires I've driven.
Of course, I use all season's, not dedicated summer tires....
