I'm a little concerned that the Sumitomo tires are rated for max speed of 65...most others are rated for max speed of 75. What do others think about this?

I run Maxxis UE168E's which are both LT and ST rated. I can run 90mph and not worry about it.

If you have to worry about the tire coming apart at 66mph, then it's junk, and you should buy a different tire. The End.

I think the fellow that upgraded to 16" and put BF Goodrich Commercial T/A's has it right I will copy his lead eventually. But for now, my Maxxis are doing fine.
