Vredestein Sprint Classic tyres

It's just a shame they are so bloomin expensive, would like to put OE cinturato's on my coupe but at £900+ a set of 5 for a car that when finished will be doing 3k a year at most makes the Conti CT22 look far more favourable at £280 for 5 more palatable

Scimitarweb has nothing to do with the Yahoo group.

Is it still going??
