BFGoodrich advises that four sizes of the g-Force Rival S tire line are engineered in such a manner as to support an “alternate” service description with a higher load rating and lower speed rating than nominal for a given P-metric size.   Specifically, by reducing the speed rating from W to V, the Light Load MSPNs can support an increase of three load indices as described within the industry standard calculations outlined in the 2015 edition of the Tire & Rim Association, Inc guide.

MSPN Dimension Light Load Load Pounds Alternate V Load Pounds
39759 P225/45R17 84W 1,102 87V 1,201

Remember to ensure maximum performance vehicle set-up, tire pressure, and temperature monitoring is imperative.  Rival S is primarily intended as a low-speed autocross tire.  Use on road courses in time attack formats requires proper car and feeding.  With proper and safe operation on “roval” road courses necessitating increased air pressure to compensate for the vertical loading exerted by the track banking.
