Vredestein Snowtrac 3 Reviews

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Fiesta (165/70 R13) on a combination of roads for 9,000 average miles
I bought these second hand for my wife's car and I've been amazed. The wet grip is really positive and far better than the 2 new winter tyres I added this year. The car has loads of grip, when it does break free it's progressive and accompanied by the noise and feedback you get from dry understeer. In the dry they are still good, they don't go spongy as you'd expect from a really soft tyre. I expect the wear will be higher and 2 of the set I bought were ruined by a tracking problem on the car they came from, make sure your suspension is up to scratch! That said they've already done more miles than the tyres her car came with new but these are winter-only use or course.

These tyres inspire confidence, the car is predictable and sure-footed, they are a bit noisy and fuel consumption seems higher but that's the price you pay for getting around in the bad weather. This is the second year they've been on and I'm 100% happy with them.

In fact I wish I'd fitted these to my car rather then the Pirelli's I've got.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Clio 1.5 dCi 86 (175/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Dependable tyres, good grip in the snow, the wear is normal, the noise is lower than other (more expensive) winter tyres such as Michelin Primacy Alpin, fuel consumption is around the same level as with the top rated Dunlop Bluresponse summer tyres. Recommended for value, especially if on a discount.

Made in the Nederlands (not china like a lot of "premium" brands), great grip on wet/snow and good grip in spring/autumn too!

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Vauxhall Astra 1.8 sport (195/60 R15) on mostly country roads for 17,750 spirited miles
Bought mine in December 2009 (4 for £235) and haven't taken them off since. It's now September 2013 and I've covered 17750 miles in my Astra. There's still 3mm left on the back and 4mm on the front - I rotated them for even wear - pretty good considering the wife thinks I drive like a nutter.
As they wear down they are becoming better summer tyres but I've lost count of the number of people rescued from abandoned cars in winter. If you can't afford two sets of tyres and aren't going to change with the seasons then be smart and opt for these.

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Panda (185/65 R14) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
I use these in the winter on my 4x4 panda, mainly for the snow, in which they are outstanding, could go on and on how impressed I am, (probably the best combination of car and tyre for the snow).

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Nissan almera 1.5 (185/65 R14 T) on mostly country roads for 2,400 spirited miles
Very impressed. Fitted as winter tyres in October.I live in a remote rural area and need them, especially as my car is an auto. First very pleased at how quiet they are. Then noticed that the car kept complete control driving through surface water.Had to do a crash stop on cow poo (the slippiest of anything you will find!) and was further amazed at how good they are. Later in the winter we have had snow, ice and then fresh snow on top of ice. Got up the hill going to work. Everyone else had to park at the bottom except a SWB Landy and me.We ferried 12 men up to work that morning. Some of them have now got winter tyres too!
I havn't tried them at speed, no motorways or even dual carriageways around here.
During April I am going to get some performance tyres on for summer. My supplier will keep the Snowtracs, labelled as my property and swap back again in October.
These tyres are quite, and have given me a very reassuring feeling of confidence in my winter driving. Recommended.

Given 88% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen Passat 1.9Tdi (205/60 R15) on mostly country roads for 2,000 average miles
Bought these late Dec 2012, no snow until mid Jan 2013. These are fantastic tyres in difficult conditions. Loose snow, compacted snow, slush, deep water, no problem. Makes driving in poor weather conditions easy. Braking and steering excellent, traction less than braking, but maybe designed to be like that?

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat Sedici 16v 4x4 (205/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 7,500 average miles
Got these tyres for winter and they didn't let me down, I truly went anywhere I wanted in snow and ice. Fitted them at the end of October and took them off at the end of March and the tyres still have 7.5mm of tread left. So impressed I now have sportrac 3 fitted for my summer tyres.
