Pirelli Scorpion Speed rating

I've just noticed that the garage have installed an S rated front rather than the V rated that is recommended. Apart from the obvious speed limit difference, is there any cause for concern ? They charged me for the S so I'm not worried about having been overcharged .

Thanks

Is that a reference to the Scorpion wobble ? Never had it on my last set to be honest. Haven't run this one loaded yet though

Anyway, thanks guys.

Unless your running two up fully loaded at 112 mph continuously you should be fine... If you are running fully loaded at 110+ continuously you're my hero.
