You should match the exact tire’s size requirements, but as far as the load index and speed rating, you have some flexibility.
As stated above, you do have some flexibility in the in the type of tire, whether it be all-season, summer, winter/snow, performance, etc. Here is a short list of common tire types:
All-season: Good all-weather grip and long mileage and commonly fit to mainstream cars and SUV’s.
Summer: Good for sports cars and performance sedans. They are similar to all-season, except they will not show “M&S” (Mud & Snow) on the sidewall of the tire.
Winter/Snow: Shows numerous treads and sipes and it easily identified by a mountain and snowflake symbol on the sidewall of the tire.
Performance: Good cornering grip and may not last very long depending on the amount of driving done.
