Depends on what you are looking for in a tire.  If you are looking for a performance tire, the GS-C bested the T/A ZR in the Tire Rack's battle of the "American" brands.  (Sorry, the only "American" brand in the test anymore was the Goodyear, Firestone now being a division of Bridgestone and BFG being a division of Michelin).  And I gotta believe the ZR is a better performance tire than a VR4.

Personally, I'm looking at the Yokohama Nexus or the Bridgestone Potenza S-02 as my new tires for the summer.  They run around $200.  I personally wouldn't touch an "all-season" at any price.  But that is me.  If you are happy with the VR4, then it is a good match for you.
