Vreds have surprised in reviews more than a few times. Some vendors claim they are the very top segment ( ie- premium) tyre but I think pricing indicates that probably stretches the truth..who knows. They perform better than anticipated in tests, as said. I have them on the 4200.I need new tyres before the end of the year. Anybody had experience with these Vredestein Ultrac Vortis? I see them listed alongside the Pirelli and Michelin as performance tyres for the GT sizes (20"). They seem to get good reviews and are a fair bit cheaper on the whole.

Rears are a tyre they do specifically for rear axles. Different carcass structure and the tread/ profile works for stability and grip ( sounds dumb. Of course grip, but because the front tends to dissipate the standing water ahead of the rears, they are able to tweak the tyre) meaning you can buy front and rears and should differentiate between axles on purchase....
My fronts are old & worn, a spent force...They are not Ultrac Vorti but Ultrac “something else”...the tyres on the rear are new Ultrac vorti
I can’t decide what to put up front. I have 18” rims so Michelin Power Sport 4S isn’t available. Power Sport 4 is but they aren’t the same tyre and I’m not sold on a decision yet. Contact Sport6? But they might embarrass the rears ..?
I like the sidewall design on the Vreds. They look sharp. They aren’t the best in the wet but you can read that for yourself...
Might just put Vreds up front too....still guessing. But they are a decent unit at the good price point. Depends what you want I guess...?
