    Rims appear the same as earlier pics? New tires?

    Did a lot of research before I bought them. Need to get them broken in first, but I have very high expectations.

    Tough one between the Hankook V12s, Toyo T1R's, Nitto INVOs, and Direzza Star Specs. But for the price, the Vredestein's can't be beat.

    I need to get another one with the rear stance. I bumped up a slot in size (265 vs 255...thought about 275, but was talked out of it).

    More and more people keep choosing these vredestein tires. Are they owned by anyone or independent? How does the the price and performance stack up?

    Why were you talked out 275? Too wide for your rim?

    We talked about rubbing a little bit (which probably wouldn't have been much of a problem), plus some possibility of abnormal wear because yes, the rim wasn't really designed for 275's in mind (but they would have fit).

    Regarding the other question you had, Vredestein has been around for years upon years. They're a EU company that is very well known on the other side of the pond, and are only finally picking up speed for the quality of tires they provide. Lots of high dollar car enthusiasts are putting these on their cars and finding amazing results (both wet and dry performance are top notch).

    Regarding price, for the set of 4 (fronts were 225/40ZR18...again, talked out of a larger size because of steering feel and crispness) cost $666 for the tires, before mount, balance, etc. I bought them in shop @ http://www.performanceplustire.com/ up in Long Beach.

    I dare say I'm going to try and drag the car a little with these once I break them in, but I'm going to be extremely mindful of the burn-out box. I want these to last longer than the 20k my PS2 ZPs did. Click here to enlarge
