Pirelli Sottozero II RFT 225/45 r18 V or H

Just wondering what you guys are getting on this winter tire. I'm about to place my order. the price is the same, so money isn't the issue. Just wasn't sure if one handles or last better than the other.

Handling won't really be determined by speed rating, especially in winter tires.

Get the v's as they have a higher rating, why not?

I was thinking the same thing, but the sales rep said the H's might last longer. I don't think he actually knew though.

He then said the v's might have better handling.

Depends on how fast you want to go. H is rated for 130 MPH and V is 149 MPH. I used V rated on my E90 for two winters. I got great traction in the snow and on the dry higways. They were Blizzaks in the 17 inch diameter. Last time was December of last year. Drove to South Carolina in 4 inches of fresh snow on the Interstate in Illinois and through patchy snow through the Smoky Mountains. They did just fine.
