    They do get a good rating. I don’t know anything about that brand.

    Just looked at the list of tires and the #1 Michelin tire is $42 more a tire but rated for 20k more miles and the Michelin outperforms in every category also. I’ve never used either of tires so I have no real world experience, just expressing an observation.

    I have the Qualtrac in 17s on my 2011 Countryman and ran them in 18 of my 2016 PL Countryman for two winters. They are good solid all-seasons, very quiet unless you take them out the track and run the snot of them, then they get a little noisey. Traction in winter Colorado cold and snow is excellent. We still have the 2011 Countryman, I would run a new set when needed. I have had 3 sets of the Continetal All-Seasons which are a bit better, but not as fairly priced.

    On the CM, they were up to the job in our Colorado front range and mountains snows, good wet and slush traction.

    Much better than runfarts.

    Thanks for the testimonial. After talking to my shop yesterday, they couldn’t get the Vredesteins, and talked me into Firestone Weathergrip. Getting them mounted on Good Friday. I’m looking forward just to trying non RFs. See what all the fuss is about.

    Getting rid of the run rocks makes a big difference. Let us know what you think once you get them on your car

    A long time ago when I was still in college, a friend of mine had a BMW 2002tii. He had maybe 5 different sets of tires for his car and he switched them depending on what he was doing with his car. He was wealthy enough to buy exotic (at the time) European brands and that is where I heard about Vredestein. Vredesteins were his summer wet weather tire of choice. I never saw him drive his car at the limits where every idiosyncrasy of a tire would make a big difference, but he seemed to think there was. I would think price performance wise, they are very good value.
