Top Vredestein Sportrac 5 Review

Given 81% 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.

Given 93% while driving a Peugeot 406 HDi (195/65 R15) on mostly motorways for 28,000 average miles
I drove the tyres for 6 summer seasons. I drove them for more than 45000km. They were still not weared down, but they started to crack on the sides because of the rubber that started to harden because of the sun i guess. I would definetely buy them again.

Is the new Goodyear Eagle F1 SuperSport RS the fastest tyre available today? Watch this video now!
Given 90% while driving a Volkswagen Passat B4 (205/50 R15) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
On the open road, the tires are excellent, but not as good on the city asphalt. They wander well on the wet. For each recommendation.

Given 77% while driving a Hyundai i40 tourer (205/60 R16) on mostly town for 20,000 spirited miles
Tyres used on a taxi / minicab
Good wear, although the edges have worn first with heavy braking on roundabouts. But 20k miles on the front and 45k on the rear, in this use is very good.
Wet grip is decent and progressive loss of traction long before they give up. But you can get caught out on quick direction changes.
Dry grip is very good, in high temps they work very well. Cold temps not as well.
A decent amount of scrubbing in is required, probably 1000 miles or so.
Noise levels I have not noticed any difference from the hankooks they replaced.
Just about to order a set of 4 replacements
