It's that time of year again. The snow is starting to melt, and it's beginning to feel a little bit more like summer with every passing day.
However, this year i find myself looking forward to the warmer weather more than usual. I am part of a very small group of people who get excited about installing their summer tires, but if you drove on Vredestein's Ultrac Sessanta tires you would understand why.
Last June i finally made the switch. I decided to throw out my old and worn out Nexen N3000 tires and go with something a little more...European. I wasn't very pleased with the tread life of the Nexen's (roughly 20,000 miles), so needless to say i was a little weary of spending twice the amount on a very similar product.

|In With the New!|
As soon as i left the parking lot with my newly installed tires, i knew that the money was well spent. I instantly felt a smoother, quieter ride and better grip than i had imagined possible.
I took the tires on a very aggressive test drive, and no matter what Dukes of Hazard style maneuvers i attempted, the tires simply would not lose traction. I had no idea such traction was possible in a powerful rear-wheel drive vehicle.
So i know what you're thinking. The tires are great on dry roads, that's to be expected. How about wet weather performance? Even better.
These tires grip more in the rain than any other tire i have ever driven on. The Sessantas cut through puddles of rain like a hot knife through butter. This tire allows you to drive in the rain without altering any of your driving habits (for better or worse). I was unable to plant even the tiniest seed of doubt in my mind about these tires even after corning in the rain at extremely high speeds.
Quite frankly i have been incredibly impressed by these tires.
If you have a muscle car or a sports car that you dream of driving like it's meant to be driven...Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta tires are definitely the way to go.
