    Help with Tire Ratings

    Hi All, Finally getting new rubber for my 04' stock rear wheel. Looking at the Metzeler's but confused by the ratings. The OEM's have a V rating. When I look at the big selling sites, I see the Metzeler 880 170/80/15 have an H or HB rating? Can I use these? Not sure what the HB rating...
