Default Should I keep my RE92A tires?

I own a 05 Outback XT, which has 225-55-17 Bridgestone RE92A "V" rated tires. I am thinking about trading them in for Yokahamas 225-55-17 H4S tires. According to the Tire Rack ratings, these H4S Yoks significantly out score the Bridgestone RE92s-there is no data on the RE92A (with asymetrical tread patterns?). I have two concerns with the H4S's 1) they are H rated not V rated (I will never travel at speeds anywhere close to the 130 MPH for the H or the 149 MPH for the V), and 2) the Yoks are 2 pounds heavier than the RE92A's. Does anybody have any thoughts on whether the Yoks are worth the $400.00 trade over the RE92A's?
