I'm gald to say this time it wasn't a trendy ricer that fell victim to the Saab but a Mercedes. A C230 Sports Coupe Kompressor. We were both sitting at a light and I was behind him. I really didn't think he would gun it of the line but he did and I put down the petal. He had about 2 cars lengths on me in the beginning but by a quater mile i had a little more then a half car on him. Needless to say it is here that I stopped because we were going about 100 and my winter tires are H rated so I thought maybe it would be a good idea.

I've gone 100km/h between lights but not 100mi/h... :lol:

H rating is 210km/h which is approx 130mi/h, so you should be good up to 150mi/h bursts but not constant driving. Constant driving should not be more than about 135-140mi/h depending on tire, but the wear will be not terribly good.

130mi/h you can drive until you run out of gas with no tire-related difficulty, unless you hit something...
