[Healeys] Tires for BJ8

Meaning no speed rating (lowest one I'm familiar with is 'S,' which I think is rated to 120)?  Wouldn't touch 'em.

The tire rating system may not be perfect--since, I believe, the manufacturers rate themselves--but there's an army of liability lawyers to keep them in line.

It means they can't assure that the tires will be safe at speeds over 90 mph but don't expect that Karman Ghias and Healey 100s are going to be driving faster.

we cannot speak on their performance characteristics, but we would
expect the performance to be commensurate with the types of vehicles on
which they are installed."

WTF does that mean???
