Coming to you from A&R Tire, talking about how to buy tires. Your speed rate of tires will indicate after--in the middle of the size or after the end of the size will give you a speed rating of H, V or Z. The new speed rating that's still in the Z category is a W. Speed rating, you start at about 180 miles an hour and go up to 149 plus. So when you're looking at a tire, it's always important to keep--make sure that the speed rating is like the original equipment speed rating and only increase that speed rating, never decrease it. This is more of your speed-rated tires. This is a Bridgestone Turanza, a premium Product. This is their new Serenity line. We're you're looking at speed ratings, what you're going to go to is the tire size. Load rating is your 97NNV. Your V speed rating is 149. So when you're looking at speed ratings, that's why you're going to indicate your speed ratings. Also it's important when you have a good speed-rated tire that you've got good traction. This tire happens to be a AA in your traction category. It doesn't do you any good to have a great speed rating and a C traction. That tire is not going to give you the performance that you actually need.
