    Hello,

    I have vredestein sessanta ultracs.

    There are 3 reasons why:

    Premium tyres at normal prices (all 4 on the M fitted for 440 pounds).

    Overall review very good in wet and dry and good wear rate.

    The tread pattern is sexy, it gives me the horn!

    My search was for : revues in dry and wet road, noise (while running all the time roof down), production "made in Germany" and price 400 EUR/ 4pcs delivered at home!
    The real surprise was in the tire center (workshop) when 2 wheels were balanced 0, without any weights and the other two with just symbolic tiny weight each one!
    For me is for the first time I met 2 tires balanced 0!
    And after 3 years (25000 km) they are in a very good elasticity and low wear........but of course because I'm driving with love!.......;)

    And me, very pleased with them, had no problems in the wet on the West Country Cruise I (and it was very wet), lovin the tread pattern:)

    You will get a thousand replies on here, it's a personal choice I'm afraid.

    It's like detailing a car there are hundreds of products for one specific job!

    Conti sport 5's great tyres but then they should be at 140+ each...

    I used falcon452 on the 2.8 zed and found them great

    Try running Pirelli, good for +/- six months, on an ///M I would think, forget it.
    I have, for the last couple of years, run only on winter rubber the whole year round. Good for any situation on the road with very flexible side wall's.

    If I am not mistaken, that is a USA brand, used to have them on my 4x4.

    conti contact sport here..got 4 part worns with almost full tread at £70 a corner..lovely grip in wet or dry and not to much road noise, plenty of feedback, you know when they are about to "let go" I would say best tyre I have ever used has also reduced the tramlining.

    also had the maxxi victras and thought they were a fantastic tyre as well but a tad more tramlining and a bit noisier..just as grippy though if a bit more "rustic"
