its something to do with speed rating with the factory tires.

if they wern't rated for high speed then they had to limit them.

I never regeared...I do 80-85 on flat ground no problem on a regular basis. The 95 was a nice long downhill.

110 in a 01 Ford Escape V6 on I-275 between Flat Rock and Romulus (felt like it coulda went a bit faster, but I was catching traffic just a bit and got out of it. Would've changed lanes, but my buddy was over there in his Caddy)
100 or so in a POS 99 Ford Ranger that took an age and a half to get there (stupidly, this was on a surface street. Not long after I'd gotten my license. Makes me feel like a dumbass every time I remember).
87 in the XJ. At least, thats what the trooper that pulled me over said he clocked me at. 85 was indicated, so he was probly right.
