I recently purchased the XL version of these tyres for my car (only just had them fitted, so my opinion on wear is taken from other reviews) to replace some Michelins, and these are so much better! More comfortable, more fun!

The best tyres I've ever had!

Definitely recommend.

Bought vredestein sportrac 5 after reading good test results and excellent reviews. Compared to the Cinturato P7 and michelin primacy3 that had before, great upgrade. Better in grip in dry and wet road, more silent and better grip in high speed curving. If they last for as long as michelin (had michelin for 70.0000 km and Pirelli for 50.0000Km without any problem) would be the perfect tyre.

I have upgraded SPORTRAC5 from GT3 with amazing results. Tyres are super silent, much smoother, steering is smooth & light, Drive is like gliding on good surfaces and on bad roads it does take lot of nuisance off. Overall good tyres. These tyres are launched in India recently only and I am one of the first ones to go in for these tyres. I choose this from Micellin PS3 ST and Pirelli Cinturato P7. On the wear rate I cannot say anything as its very early. Considering the road conditions in India, I would say this would be one of the harshest test that these tyres are subject to now. But as such tyre is strongly made, light in weight, good tread, strong sidewalls, So overall a very balanced tyres and should come out good in this test for durability...will post review again after 5000 kms drive.

Just bought the third set of four tyres for my VW Jetta, and I cannont fault these tyres for price and overall performance.I only paid £59 for each tyre at M&M Tyres in Caerphilly (what a bargain!!)

Grip: Superb - no complaints, even near freezing. Drags a fair bit in standing water but grip never flinches. Feels totally planted in the dry and wet.

Steering: Excellent turn-in, steering feels heavy but communicative. Lets you know about camber and tramlines, but I prefer it that way. Very stable and planted even with quick steering changes - never gets snappy. Heavy steering can be annoying for tight parking.

Noise: Not bad. Not great. Moderate road noise but fairly neutral sounding and not too rumbly. Worse at low speed. No whining or buzzing, just road roar. Overall I have no issue with it, but there are better options around if you want quiet. Note: my car is not great for road noise in general.

Ride: Fairly firm, taut and very well damped. Not bouncy or crashy. Overall very pleased. Doesn't crash all over the place over potholes even when cold.

Wear: no idea.

Fuel: Only used when fairly cold outside. About average. Not a fuel economy tyre, but not enough worse to bother me.

Overall: A good, solid, firm feeling sporty tyre available in non-sporty sizes with no real drawbacks. Lots of confidence, good fun to drive on, far better than I expected, and would totally buy again. Feels like I've had a suspension upgrade. Oh, and they're very reasonably priced.

Just beware that it's a tyre that lets you know what's going on at the front wheels. If you want to feel isolated from it, maybe there are better options.

Oh, and the tyre in general looks pretty classy, in case that's your thing.

To replace all four tyres at a reasonable cost replacing my worn out but impressive Michelin PS2's I thought was going to be impossible to match performance. Reading reviews on this website changed that when fitted Sport Trac 5's, they didn't match the Michelins but surpassed them. On dry surfaces a major improvement not just in grip but vehicle handling, on wet where the PS2's were outstanding the Sport trac's matched. They look similar to the Michelins but with firmer construction, a little bit harsher ride over bumps and road noise on cornering but other wise quiet runners. A steel at £71 a corner for the performance and quality with improved handling and braking.
