Thoughts/experience with Avon speedmaster rib front tire

I've been thinking of going with a more old school look on my '08 FXDWG and part of that would be a ribbed front tire like you would find on an old school chopper.
Does anyone here have any experience with the Avon speedmaster ribbed front? I read one review that said they tend to follow grooved pavement and tend to drift with the grooves.
Also, I noticed the sell 2 variations. One is rated to 112mph and the other is higher. I don't typically ride fast like that. Maybe 70-80 on the highway. That being said, would the lower speed rating be just fine? Thanks for any input.

Ive had good luck with Avon Tires. Never used a Speedmaster, but with Tires always go with the Better one.
