How do I know the speed rating on my tire.

Hi, just wondering where do I find a speed rating on my tires? Are there any warning signs when you know your pushing the speed limit on your tires?

Um no there isnt really a way to tell when you're just driving around and you'll never hear or feel much when making or breaking the rated limit. But if you're driving a Roush Focus I think you have been equiped with tires than can handle the top speed of the vehicle, I wouldn't worry about it. But if you're really curious go to tirerack.com and look up your tire. The tires should be in the manual or just look on the side wall.

BTW where you at in Detroit?

I live in Westland. Pretty close to Detroit and people know where Detroit is.
