To follow up on the whole V-Rated tire thing, I really have never seen a direct correlation between comfort in tires and their speed ratings. Tire comfort and noise has more to do with the casing material (steel vs fiber, etc), tread compound and tread block shape(design). You can find many stiffer riding tires in a T rating than you'll find in an H or V, simply because of the harder compounds used to reach the higher treadlife numbers. However, tire quality also plays a huge role in comfort, no matter the mileage warranty or speed rating, and you can't forget to make sure the tire was designed with comfort in mind.
Case and point, if you took a Michelin Primacy MXV4 in a T rating and compared it to a BFGoodrich Touring T/A (Sams Club tire, also a T-Rating, both made by michelin) you'd find a drastic difference in ride quality. Now, do the same thing and take a Bridgestone Potenza G009 (discontinued, but was primarily offered in a V-Rating) and compare it to a Michelin Premier in a V-Rating, you'd forever forget speed rating really mattered! Speed ratings have to do with how a tire handles under certain loads, speeds, temperatures, etc and not how it rides necessarily. Toyota designed the Camry to use a V-Rated tire because it wanted to make it handle a certain way for the suspension to take less of the work and have the sidewall stay stiffer instead, not because they wanted the best selling car in the US to ride horribly, nor because any regular Camry would ever get even close to 149 MPH (V-Rating).
Companies like Michelin have engineered in things like Max Touch Construction, allowing for a greater contact patch of the tire, offering better traction, allowing better weight distribution of the tire, which increases treadlife and offers higher comfort levels. Those sort of high dollar R&D features are why your Michelins ride better, stop sooner and handle better than your typical bargain basement Kelly (Goodyear), Primewell (Bridgestone) or Nankang (TireCo) tires. Those cheap tire brands literally are just round, black and hold air.
Not to beat a dead horse, but my W-Rated Pilot Sport A/S3s ride like a UHP All Season, moreso than my W-Rated Primacy MXM4s did, which are some of the most comfortable tires made in "low profile" sizes. Same speed rating, very different ride and handling characteristics.
