I read about Pirelli CT's. I think I am going that direction. I heard the "V" handles better. Eufori (ultra high perf summer), is this the tire used in size 195/55/16??
The V speed rated Pirelli [email protected] weighs 25 pounds. The H rated Pirelli [email protected] weighs 20 pounds. My experience with different tires says the lighter, 20 pound H rated tire will handle better. And the H rated tire is usually cheaper.
What does the E3 (180) Weigh?? I think the factory E3 is a 160, but the 180 fits. Did I get that right?
I ran the V rated Pirelli [email protected] I am now on V rated Kuhmo Ecsta SPT XRP (both 195/55R16) and find the Kuhmo a much nicer handling tire (easier turning and less reactive to road camber/debris). They both weigh in at 25lbs (about 5lbs more than the OEM MT).
I have always run the H rated up to 135 mph.I never get the chance to run 149 with the V so I didn't try that one out.Law enforcement is good with 135,but 149 is a little over the top for them in these parts.:shrug:
Guys who have run the V also reported less mileage.
