It is the manufacturers safety standard. The same car will be sold in countries with different or no sped limits, and can be driven across borders. That is why they spec 150mph+ rated tyres to a UK car. because there is nothing to stop you driving to germany and driving at 160mph. If the 70mph rated tyre was to blow out at 110, and you didn't know it was only rated to 70, but it had been specced as a UK spec tyre by the manufacturer, whose fault would it be? the tyre was legal for the country it was specced for. The car was legally allowed to cross borders, and the speed being done was legal in the country it was being done? Again, whose fault was the speed related blow out. -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again. Homepage:
