You will find your speed rating on the side of your tyre. Like in the image displayed here, the speed rating can be found at the end of the tyre size. It is always represented by a letter. In this case, a "W".
Once you know your tyre size, you can work out what is the maximum speed that your tyre can handle. For example, the "W" rating seen in the image, tells us that this tyre can reach speeds of up to 168mph.
Speed ratings are based on scientific tests where the tyre is run at speeds in 6.2 mph steps in 10 minute increments until the required speed has been met.
