actually, sorry for being terminally thick where tyres are concerned but i'm still missing some info...

i've looked at the loadrating table from Jim Doodle (above) and as my van is an '03 888 i guess this line is relavent
Van 800 1996 - 2003 SWB 1250kg 1230kg 2480kg 92

so i need a load rating of at least 92, yes? ....but what speed rating do i need to be legal?
thanks in advance of any help given
