Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta Tires

Was wondering if you guys could help me decide

My rear tires are almost bald. I currently have the Vredestein Ultrac on all four tires. The sizes that i current have are

Front: 255-35-19
Rear: 275-35-19

considering that the Vredesteins have gone up significantly in price since last time that I bought them, are they still the best tires for the money?

Or do you guys think I should upgrade to the Michelin Pilot Super Sport, which are only $100 more a piece?

I'll only be buying the 2 rear ones.

Thanks

ugh, they have gone up sooo much.

keep the same on the front and rear; the vreds are very good tires. If you need all 4 next time around, maybe look into a change then.

I appreciate it nbennettksu.

Yeah. The prices have skyrocketed for those tires. And they are great. They lasted longer than the original Michelin's that came with car, and I didn't notice any drop in the performance or grip.

Check around. My shop still sells them for similar to before. Maybe $10/tire more.
They also have the new Vorti tire that is a little more money, but still less than the PSS.
