Q&A - Speed Rating of Tires
I have a real issue with the trend of pick up trucks being modified.
Without going into all the details of what the modifications may include, lets say that there seems to be little regard for compliance for existing MV regulations, and it has now become accepted practise. My perceived take on it is that both enforcement, and the owners of modified vehicles, have accepted, that due to it evolving to the prevalence its now at, maybe it is acceptable.
One aspect I am curious about is the speed rating of the tires that are being installed on trucks. The cosmetic appearance seems to be the primary concern, as with all the other trendy modifications, are usually made in conjunction to complete the transformation. In short,"Fashion before Function".
I have attached a link to a dash cam video, that will explain why I am asking about tire rating.
As i said I have serious concerns with whole "trend", and have contacted ICBC in the past and tried to encourage them to help address the matter. They said it is an enforcement issue.
