hydroedge rating?

Post  vizsla_nut on Thu Mar 19, 2009 10:11 am

not that i ride that fast but? is any one else concerned that this tire only has a T speed rating?
my concern is that putting this on a bike that has the potential for much higher speeds than the tire is rated for could be dangerous, i love the style of this tire but want some peace of mind as well

We ran the 165's that are VW tires and only rated for 118 mph. Smokey and I have kept them in the triple digits a bunch. Like 120+ mph!...hehehehe I have seen old drag racers before they made smaller tires for the front of drag cars run VW tires for years in the 150 range!

So I don't have an issue with speed ratings, unless you did at a constant speed for hours!
