212- Affirmative, XWXs for the Daytona and Dino, the Vredensteins were only on the 911S. Remembering that was nearly 40 years ago, the XWXs were much better than the Vredensteins then, but the Vs were way cheaper and lasted much longer than the 5-6000 miles of the XWXs. Compounds are completely different now, so not sure how relevant my experience is for current tires.
Shortly after putting the Vs on the 911S, I put her in a four wheel slide that would have been just a normal corner for the XWXs. The 911S was much better handling than the 911T or 911E from that period, either of which probably would have spun instead of sliding.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
