When I started to look for some new wheels and tires for my car with Autotek we agreed that my car needed not only good looking wheels but it needed high technology light weight wheels and we ended up with the TSW Bathurst wheels that are rotary forged, which make them very light and even at a size of 20 inches they only weigh 11kg per wheel, which is very light for any size wheels.
After we had the wheels all figured out we needed some tires to go with them. What would fit nicely with the hightech wheels? Autotek suggested to go with the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti tires, I agreed and we ordered the tires.
What is so great with the Vredestein Ultrac Vortis? Well, if you are familiar with legendary car designers, these tires are designed by Giugiaro. If you ask, who or what is Giugiaro? He is one of the great car designers of all time. He has designed cars like the original Lotus Esprit, the original BMW M1, the legendary DeLorean that was in all the Back to the Future movies, lots of Alfa Romeos, the Ferrari 250 GT SWB and many more legendary cars.

Does this make the tires better then others, well, if you compare to other highend high speed rated tires the Vredestein Ultrac Vortis are very good. But you also have to take in consideration the coolness factor, and when you add the coolness factor they go off the charts!
Am I happy with the tires? Hell yeah, just imagine how cool it is to have tires designed by who designed the original Lotus Esprit, the legendary DeLorean and driving a BMW having tires which are designed by the designer of the original BMW M1 and on top of that give a lot of traction and give a great ride in any condition.
