93 supports less weight than a 94.

93V are the best tires to have, for one thing you can put 51 psi in the tires vs 44 psi.  Here are the specs: https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Michelin&tireModel=Energy+Saver+A%2FS 93V has wider tread. :)

As murphy pointed out, the 94 is just a higher load rating, so nothing bad can happen.  But usually that higher load rating is because the tire has an extra belt or some other structure to it that is usually going to result in higher rolling resistance and thus worse fuel economy.

 

There are about a billion possible differences amongst the tires on the market, load rating is just one of them. What do you really want out of your tires?
