Those Vreds are a tempting price!! Compared to the two above, are they in a different league, or are they pretty similar in terms of dry/wet grip and wear?
I was just checking to see if you'd spot my deliberate mistake,you were still awake

Of course they are 790.40 + delivery,so well done

Upsizing - wider tyre,more rubber to grip the tarmac,better traction,less of the T/control disco light!

I can't offer a comparison in honesty Mo, as I've never used either of your two preferences.
The price of the Vreds would put them in a different league I guess,perception and reality is often blurred though.

I found the Vreds significantly better than the Falkens I used to have fitted,and by some margin, and the price saving over the other two (PSS/Conti) cannot be ignored.

I'm sure many will agree,but just as many will disagree.

170.00 ish will go towards your other kitty,and you'll have more rubber to boot

Never argue with an idiot on the internet. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
