What's the difference between v and w rated tires? I am specifically looking at the Kumho Ecsta 205/50/15 tire on stock 96 GSR rims. v is $58, w is $60. Which has the stiffer sidewall? Will I notice a difference? Thanks!

I bought the Z rated 712's from http://www.TireRack.com. They were the same price as the lower rated tires. You will be sacrificing a small amount of tread life to get the higher speed rating, but the tires will hold up better under abuse. I am very happy that I got the Z rated ones.
