How rigidly should I adhere to the spec'd tire size/rating chart on >the driver door sticker? For instance, if the sticker specifies 215/65 >102H, would it be unsafe to use a tire the same size but rated 95S? > The 102H is the load index (102) and speed rating (H). The load index is VERY IMPORTANT. The speed index less so (unless you routinely drive very fast for long periods). A tire marked 95S would be totally inadequate and potentially dangerous. Stick to the recommended tire specs.
