Thank you! I pulled the trigger to purchase the Vreds for my 20s and probably will change to PSS on my OEM 19s when time is due.

Just got back from Orlando so I can better compare the Vdreds to the Pilot Sports I had just taken off.

Overall I really like the Vdreds so far, right after they were put on I sensed the car felt more "flat" to the road. Some of it may be that I was going to slightly wider tires, but they have a nice flat feel. The ride was more rough at first, but on the way back on my trip they had a softer feel after being broken in. The best compliment for the wheels is that after being broken in I don't notice much difference in the ride feel from the Pilot Sports. Also, I went through some storms on the way back and the tires felt great in the rain. Even in a hard rain at highway speeds the tires did not feel any different from dry conditions. Objectively, a very nice tire IMO, and factoring in the price, I agree with other posters that it is a ridiculously good tire. Still not sure how to properly pronounce the tire maker though .

Thank you to all forum members for their opinions on this tire, I would have not learned about it otherwise. To those with a negative opinions, I am curious as to why? If there is any objective data on performance differences to other tires or a specifc problem with the tires that you encountered, please post your data or experiences so that if there is a glaring weakness or problem, I can keep it in mind.

I have 22k miles on my Vreds now. I really like them but after about 15k they started getting really loud. I think I can probably squeeze about 30k out of these before they reach the wear bars. I got 30k out of my OEM PS2s as well. While I liked the Vreds a lot, the noise thing gets old quick so I think I'm going to shop for something else. If I could get PSS in the proper size for 20s, I'd be all over it.

I will be putting Vreds on nmh car soon as my Conti's are just about shot. Can't decide whether to go for 275/35 or 275/30 size for the rear of my stock 19" wheels. Any advice much appreciated.
I am running 245/35 up front.

Loving my square setup. I did 4 rear zcp wheels, so they are all 19x10, and then I used 275/30 Vreds. Although I am sure I could have fit a 285 or 295 rear, I wanted a square setup so that I can rotate the tires as they wear. I am on stock suspension and there is no rubbing at all.

I've had my vreds for about the same mileage and noticed the increased noise as well. It is really bothering me. While vreds are a great value and perform well I'm probabably going with PSS for my next set.
