these are WINTER tires for better traction in snow and ice, not performance tires...... why would you want to go anywhere over 100 in snowy or icey conditions anyways?

If you wanted to safely go fast on snow/winter tires, you should have bought H-rated tires, like Blizzak LM-22, WinterSport M2, or Goodyear Ultragrip, or Pilot Artics.

Remember, you got winter tires for safety. :thumbup:
