Default Anyone running Vredestein Sensatta's on a Z06?

I read so many good reviews about these tires, but they all seem to be on base Corvettes. I'm curious if they can put the power down in a Z? My car is stock, but the GYSC's are lousy as we all know. I don't see track time, but I really like to be able to hook up and go. My preferred tire, if it were available, is the RE11. I have that on another car and it is amazing. I wouldn't expect the Vredestein to be at that same level, but was hoping it might perform in the same league as the NT05. Any experiences with them?

Thank you!!!

I replaced my Goodyears with the Vredestein's and have never looked back. They hold the power very well and worked great as a rain tire on a recent HPDE event.

A friend uses them on his highly modified M3 as well.

So you are running 275 40 17 in the front, then, and 295 35 18 in the rear? What's the OD difference between the two?

Vredesteins tech sheet shows 0.4" difference. I picked these up a few months ago and am very impressed.

Oh yeah. $850 to my door. They offer more grip than I have skill for and they are very noticeably better in the rain than the F1s.
I often go to "Exotics @ RTC" and you will see them on exotics like Lambo and Porsche. I believe they are stock on BMW.
I would get them if I were you.
