Dual Speed rating "W" and "Y" on Plate "Gill @ Tirerack"

Hey Gill
If you see this maybe you can help.
What is the go with the dual speed rating on the sticker inside the drivers door?
Can you run either on the 1er's?

Anyone else's feedback is appreciated.

Yes, either would be fine. Both speed ratings W(168mph) and Y(186mph) are above the vehicles speed capabilities (governed at 155mph.)

Thanks Gill.

FYI still waiting on my O.Z. ordered from Vance the other week.
Tirerack were great and got the parcel away promptly, but I can't say the same for Fedex.
I am hoping they will come today


Hey would you make a suggestion on tyres?
