I put Vrederstein on my VW replacing the Continentals which got easily damaged on the sidewalls. They were well recommended on Tire Rack by the reviews and I'm happy with them
I went to Creamery and got Kellys put on my LE. Good tires and a good price since we don't put a lot of miles on them.
Either one is better than what you have.

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.
