Anybody know anything or have experience with these tires? Thinking of the Quattro 5.
Tirerack.com users rate them very well (including winter driving), the cost is not insane, and Consumer Reports has them down as one of the lowest rolling resistances for mpg. Slightly less of a guaranteed lifespan than most (45,000). I assume that may be due to the tradeoff in performance.
Just not sure I want to risk a wad of cash on mystery tires I would have to order online and then pay someone to install. Finding a set locally generally means lower install costs and often some sort of road hazard insurance and/or free tire lifetime balancing thrown in.

I cannot speak to the mystery tires, never heard of them before. That does not mean they are bad but for me, with a purchase like tires, I will stick with a brand I know and trust but again that is just me. Good luck with your decision.

Thanks for the feedback. As promising as the Vredestein look, I think I will play it safe on an investment this big and focus on the General Altimax 43T tires when I look to replace all four tires before winter sets in.

Vredestein tires are manufactured in the Netherlands, and definitely merit consideration. They are highly regarded in Europe, but have gained very little market penetration here in the US. Their lower prices here relative to competing brands represents an attempt to remedy that.

I ran a set Vredesteins on one of my previous cars and was impressed with both their performance and longevity, especially for the money.
