Did I forget to say "save the safety lectures"? Thought that might have carried 
through associatively from one of the previous posts :) It's true those tires 
are only H rated, but a significant portion of speed ratings are related to 
*sustained* speed above xxx mph - heat buildup and so on, as in hours and 
hours... It doesn't mean the tire will blow up if you exceed the rating by 
20-30 mph, going straight, for about a minute. For tires that already have some 
sort of reasonable speed rating this is my opinion, not for Pep Boys 4-for-$99 

YMMV as always,
