Vredestein Sportrac 5 Reviews

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Focus (205/55 R16 W) on mostly country roads for 12,000 spirited miles
Got these to replace a set of worn out Michelin Primary HP tyres on the Ford Focus.
Firstly you need to understand that a couple of years previously i'd had the standard suspension upgraded by swapping it out for Bilstien B12 Gas shocks with matching Eibach springs, due to rubbish A & B roads causing suspension damage, After which I had the whole set up laser aligned by the tuning company that fitted the suspension.

Anyways , following this , the better handling from this swap led to a downside.The tyre noise transmitting through the body from the Michelin's on all road surfaces increased considerably.When it came time to change, i got a set of 4 x Sportrac 5's all round.Firstly the road noise reduced noticeably.It was still there, but not as bad.
Handling: - At first I though I'd made a huge mistake. The handling seemed sloppy and the car seemed wayward.However I persevered and as the tyres scrubbed in over the next few thousand miles, the grip level has kept on increasing.

12000 mile later and they are now gripping really well in both wet and dry conditions, almost like a premium sports tyre. The wear rate also seems very good.

Knowing what i know now.I will definitely put them on again , when it becomes time to replace them, and put up with scrubbing the next set in as well.

Many told me that Vredestein Sportrac 5 tyre is not worth looking at, but they were wrong.
Rubber is excellent on wet roads (60% of my mileage was on wet roads so far since rain if falling 3 weeks now), on dry road is OK.
Braking distance is exemplary, both in dry and wet. Since I do not have sport car, I cannot give feedback for track, but sure can say that this tyre has better performance on my car than Continental PremiumContact which I have previously for 3 years.
Wear seems very good.

Recommended for passenger car.

Have done 41K on these tyres in North India. Over 50% of the treed still remains, easily looks like will go 40 K more.... superb handling, braking and comfort. Except to occasional punctures no problems at all...great tyres...

Given 60% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota MR2 mk3 Roadster (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 2,000 spirited miles
Very bad tyres for a sport car , sidewalls are so so so soft , tyres are pumping, grip is rather good but you lose all driving precision, very very poor sensations. I hate these tyres

Given 65% (breakdown) while driving a Honda CIVIC 1.6 VTEC (165/65 R15) on mostly motorways for 10,000 spirited miles
The tire is very good except for 2 things
1. noisy compared to Bridgestone GR90, or Goodyear Excellence
2. Very Very low fuel economy. When changed to tires to Sportrac 5, I clearly noticed the car does not accelerate as normal, I thought that the tyre pressure is low.
