    Tire Replacement

    I have a 2009 Azera Limited. Can I use H rated tires on this car rather that the V rated tires? I am in the "Tires for Life Program" and the dealer replaced my tires with Michelin Primacy MXV4 235/66/55R17 99H. While the dealer says this is ok, Michelin website returns the following info. "Unfortunately, this tire line does not meet your vehicles's specifications". Anyone have any thoughts on the subject. Thanks.

    RE: Tire Replacement

    As long as the tires' load rating is the same as original equipment, and you don't exceed the tires' maximum speed range, you're probably OK. That's not to say that Hyundai, Michelin, or Hankook will be patting you on the back for dropping to an H or T speed rated model; that's probably the limit of their legal responsibilities. And obviously you're on your own to limit your cruising speeds to 130mph with H-rated tires, but most likely your local gendarme will be very happy to remind you long before that!

    Given that the Azera is my wife's D/D and not a sports car anyway, I swapped to Falken Sincera SN211 tires in 225/60-17 size, for a more comfortable ride (retaining the same load carrying ability & roughly the same diameter, but only a "T" speed rating). Oh yeah, and my wife agreed to keep it under 120mph. Added smoothness much appreciated.

    Go for it; it's a personal choice based on your own use of the car. YMMV

    Ya. Your not going to have any issues when it comes to tire lines. As long as the size and load is comparable, then you will be fine.
