    my car tires have a speed rating printed on the sidewalls and it got me thinking/worried about my bike tires,i have reached 86 kmh on pavement going down really steep grades and i am sure that is way more than what the manufacturers intended.i really dont want any components to fail on me while im riding at that speed and especially not my tires or wheels.do i have anything to worry about?
    i run industry 9 d.h. with aluminum spokes and velocity p35 rims and on pavement i use intense micro knobby 2 tires size26x2.25 tubeless with stans sealant.
    the tires are very light,so not that strong.but then a heavier/stronger tire would be more affected by centrifugal forces.
    by the way the intense mk2 are very fast and have better traction on dry pavement than any other tire i have ever tried
