Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 155 (205/50 R15 V) on a combination of roads for 0 average miles
I used them whole spring and summer in Georgia.
negative sides: noisy like wheel hub bearing is out, no stability and screaming when cornering in summer.
positive: perfect traction in rain, perfect stability in water, avoiding aquaplaning
I still have this tires but not going buy again

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a SEAT (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
I have been running these Sportrac3's for around 8000 miles or so now and they are excellent, really good in the wet and have never had any concerns whatsoever. They corner well with a lot of positive feedback and when hitting deep puddles after the recent wet spell that we have just endured these tyres were faultless, no sign's of aquaplaning.
In the run up to winter late 2013 I was touring over to the lakes and the temp suddenly dropped to just above freezing, when I had pulled over for a quick stop, out of interest I felt the tyres they had warmed up nicely, most other summer tyres would still be rock hard at this point!

Its a shame they are being slowly phased out for the new Sportrac5's as I have them fit on my partner and daughters cars also - A great tyre and would definitely buy again.

Given 83% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Starlet Glanza V (195/50 R15 V) on mostly town for 5,000 spirited miles
This is a pretty good tyre, and would recommend it to all the people who drive normal/sportive. Very safe tyre in wet. I now run 8000 km with it on my (starlet glanza V) and the profile is now 3.5mm at the front and 5.6mm at the back. And now put the front to the back. And now considering to buy 2 new Bridgestone potenza re002 because the side wall of the vredestein is not stiff enough when you are doing quick cornering. Long corner grip is superb.

Given 97% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Laguna I (195/65 R15 V) on mostly country roads for 13,000 spirited miles
I have them for 20 000km so far very predictive and very progressive in grip loss in both braking and speedy turning providing very good feedback. I would say that they are even better than my winter tyres on wet surface in the 5C to 10C weather temperature range.I don`t have any complains about road noise. Unfortunately i think Sportrac 5 is coming on their place so they will be no longer available , so sad , cause they hold really steady in corners that i believe is because of the tread design with the big side contact surface :(
