It's supposed to be on the Michelin PSS performance level at around half the price, Afew motorists in uk are using them on aston martins and prefer them to be better than the top Pirelli p zero's in every department. I will try them on my m3 when my conti's are worn out. The previous ultrac sessanta were amazing rubber and these were reviewed in uk as better in every segment than ultrac sessanta's. Anybody heard anything or any revews about the new VORTI tyres?

Will you look at that. They're available in 255/35-19s and 285/30-19s, while the PSS is not (in the latter size). How interesting...

Does anyone know how much these weigh relative to PSSs of equal size?

285/30-19s are available, though. I've been running the 275/35-19 PS2 for a while, and I still break traction. I've been waiting for Michelin to release the PSS in 285/30 but I'm tired of waiting, as I'm down to 2mm of tread. Might be something for you to consider, aus.

interesting...

for those wanting 275/35 rear setup, you should get the 285/30 as they are the oem gts tire size on the same zcp rim we are using. if it is good enough for bmw, it should be good enough for us .

the 285 would give wider contact and the 30 ratio compensates for the taller height so it still looks even with the 255/35 front.

It should be fine. The 280/30 would be about 3/4 inch smaller in overall diameter than the stock 265/35 and about 1/2 an inch smaller than the +1 275/35. It's within 1-2% of both tire sizes, so it should be fine.

And as hl0m4n mentions, it's the OEM tire size for the GTS.

Again, does anyone know the weight of these tires relative to the PSS?

This is the best site for Vredestein tires. The Vortis are much cheaper @ $224 vs $246. I have purchased 4 sets of tires from them without any issues.

Here is a direct link: http://www.groupawheels.com/ProductD...c-48c3b3f8e3de

Sucks...I just got rears last month...wish I knew about these :-( But I need fronts.

This is the best calculator that I have found...all tire/wheel parmeters considered. The best is that it provides the difference in current and new setup so that you can model any setup. This should be a sticky in all wheels/tire sections

Just talked with Performance Plus in Long Beach, and they have them now too.
I need fronts too. Like Digitalwok, I just got rears a few months ago!!

Turns out the new Vreds run about $40/tire less than a Super Sport for the fronts. Not sure about the rears. $80 is still a decent dinner. Just have to see how they compare to the SuperSports. The SS do come with a 30,000 mile pro-rate warranty.

Yep. SuperSports are way cheaper than the PS2's.

Not sure what the price difference is for the rears but Vred doesn't make 275/35-19 for the stock wheels.

Where did you find the Super Sports for under $300? The best I could find was around the $400 mark?

Performamce Plus in Long Beach. It was for the 255/35-19 size.
I was surprised it was before $300.

Nuts. 295/30/19 are over 400. Must have been a special. That is almost twice the price.
