Default Vredestein Ultrac tires

Does anyone have any experience with Vredestein Ultrac tires, I purchased an 2003 S8 that I had them and I need to decide whether to get two new ones or switch out the whole set to Michelin Pilots, Conti's, Dunlaps, etc.
Thanks

Your car is Quattro, right? Get used to buying tires in sets of 4, my friend. Do I need to explain why, or, can you reason it out?

I already have two new Ultrac's, so I am trying to decide with either sticking with this brand or buying 4 of something else for my summer tires. Have Michelin Pilot A/S winter tires.

I roll FALKEN tires, personally. Have since my days in Europe with my 175mph Opel Calibra Turbo (bone-stock, ALL factory, FWIW). $ 4 $, the absoulte best deal on teh planet, IMHO. Only thing is you generally hafta run them about 5-7 pounds over factory recommended PSI, or they'll feel squirrelly. Good ride. EXCELLENT wet-weather grip. Very good snow traction. Absoultely useless, on ice, just like everything else.

To answer your original question, I have no experience, whatsoever, with Vredesteins. Sorry.
