I have Vredersteins on one of my cars and I like them. They’re also one of the few mfgs who stock the proper sizes for our LBCs. Also, Ed knows his stuff - I’d trust him.
The problem with older tires isn’t really the dry rot - they’ll survive that for ages - but it’s that the tread rubber gets hardened, and as such it doesn’t stick to the road well, particularly in the wet. Old tires are a terrible hazard in rain.

I'd be more concerned about dry rot than tread wear. Ed recommend Vrederstein to me as well for my 64 B since my low mileage tires were 25 years old.
They have a fairly tall sidewall which has softened my ride considerably and they fill the wheel wells nicely.
I wouldn't recommend them if you want to autocross or do some fast on ramps, but for me they're great.
It B fun,

I currently have 12 year old Michelin Harmonys on my '78 Roadster with plenty of tread left. But, the age is starting to concern me (particularly for highway driving). Should I be? If
so, what would you recommend? Ed Sweeney at Proper Noise once recommended Vredstein but I never got a reason why.
