Well this is the third time I have tried to send this...Damn work 
email!!
All,

I had a little free time to throw together a quick list comparing 
several tires (all in stock size and either V or Z rated).  Since spring 
is on its way I thought this may be of some use??  

I have the excel version which is much nicer, if you want it just reply 
privately.
