Bought an 01 Accord V6 with the 3.0L engine today. It needs new tires. The manual says the tire specs indicate it should take a P205/65R 15 92V. I was wondering if it could take instead the P195/65R 15 89H tires since I have two of those from an 01 4cyl Accord. If not, how important is it to get P205's with the 92V load and speed rating? When I check tirerack.com, they offered quite a few P205's with a 92H rating so am not sure whether the V speed rating is really necessary. Many thanks for your help on this.

In terms of speed rating, get something that can go 115MPH.

In terms of size, the 205 size is the size for the EX models whereas the 195 size is the size of LX models. Either size will work in terms of keeping your speedometer running at specification

^^ 195 and 205 size tires are both OEM sizes from Honda.
