I would be concerned about the Q speed rating.

Speed rating takes lots of things into account, including the tire's resistance to coming apart. Both the physics of speed / acceleration and braking create stresses on the tire's construction. This thought is the basis for 211Chuck's criticism of H-rated tires, as compared to V-rated ones. The Q-rating raises the concern even higher. But folks are certainly free to ride what they want. The OP raised a valid question and I responded with my view.
