Jessie V.: the VR speed rating is higher than the HR, my 2011 R1200GScame with the VR rated tires so I replaced them with VR rated tires. Jul 4, 2011

Chris K: 'H' and 'V' are speed ratings, of which 'V' is the higher. The 'R' stands for radius in reference to the tire/wheel size. May 3, 2011

A shopper asked: can you run these on a stock 2012KLR? Sep 5, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Tripintiger: If you are talking about the Metzeler Tourance, if they are available in the size to fit your KLR, this would be a great tire if you ride mostly on the street. For anything more gnarly than a nice gravel road, I would get a more aggressive tire. Sep 17, 2012
Reply to Tripintiger Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Absolutely! Install with a tube and you are ready to rock. The stock rear tire size for a KLR is 130/80-17. Sep 6, 2012

A shopper asked: I have a F800GS BMW for front tires am I ordering the 90/90/21 (H) or (V) and for rear is it the 150/79/17 (VR) or (HR)? Jul 7, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Roosterman: The H and HR rated tires are generally for sustained speeds in excess of 130 MPH. If you don't ride that fast you don't need them. Some say that the tread life on the H rated tires is better because they have a higher heat rating, but in my experience I gave not found that to be true. Hope this helps Mar 6, 2013

Sumo: Since the top speed of the F800GS is low, you could get by with either the H or the V.
H tires are rated up to 130mph
while
V tires are rated up to 149mph

If they are the same price, get the V, but if you can save any $, get the H.
