For tyres with two different load indexes on different axles, (regarding braking, or regarding legal issues) there is no problem in your case. You can fit the size 205/55R16 91H at the front and 205/55R16 91V at the rear. However, please note that our general advise will be to always fit 4 tyres with the same performances on one car.

in the UK, it is legally allowed to fit tyres with a different speed index (like H or V) on one axle. However, this is not recommended by our tyre experts. Our technical advice regarding grip, handling and braking performance is related to the same load and speed index - since in your case - one tyre will be optimised for a different maximum speed than the other. Please keep in mind that both tyres need to be of the same brand and use (e.g. snow/road).
