    I will need to change my winter tires to summer tires soon. I drove some premium Vredesteijn Snowtrac 3 tires during the winter and i am now looking for the best tested summer tires.

    Anybody got a clue what to buy?

    I don't know anything about roadcar tyres, but one advice from me:

    STAY AWAY FROM PIRELLI ;)

    I really like Bridgestone Potenza. These have done 80,000+km on a Seat Ibiza and they're pretty grippy

    I already used the Vredestein Snowtrac 3 last winter as wintertires and i was really amazed with the amoung of grip, stability and traction of it. Small downside was that they make quite a bit of noise though.

    I now bought four of these:

    Vredestein Sportrac 3 for the summer (including four new rims :D)
