Some states (Maine for example) either have laws or want laws to make people put on the same tire size and speed rating. (got to protect the voters). Better profits for the tire guys by the way. Other dealers may make you sign a waiver if you want lower speed rated tires.
In my opinion, the bottom line is you won't get the same high performance traction rating (AA) and the handling won't be as crisp. The average driver won't notice it and will be happly with the greatly improved treadwear.
Learn about traction, temperature, and treadwear ratings and look at several websites and Consumer's Reports for good recommendations. Keep air in your tires.
My '91 2.2 130 hp came with H rated tires. Subaru give me a break. Hard for this car to get out of its own way.
