Not really. There is not that much difference from a H to a V rating. She says it feels generally "softer". I took it out today on a wet twisty road put the whip to it and it felt like a new car/SUV. I would say not as stiff as the well worn Falkens but the grip was way better. I tried to have it break free on a hard corner at 65 and it was pretty amazing. First time I ever really pushed this rig and it is impressive for what it is.Did you notice any difference in the stiffness of the sidewalk going from a V rated to a H rated tire
I went with the Defenders on good advice here and they should do decently in the snow and rain here in Montana. Discount tire.. about $950 all in ( not tax here in MT) . I'm a Michelin fan and believe in good contact with the road. The Falkens were close to shot at 22k miles but most of those miles were highway miles and heavy chip seal here. Discount tire guy verified that most OEM tires are not great. Expensive but that's what you get when your rolling on 20" 255 rubber.
