Top Vredestein Sportrac 5 Review

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.

Given 63% (breakdown) while driving a CitroŽn C Crosser (225/55 R18) on mostly motorways for 20 spirited miles
Driving 2008 ,SUV , Citroen C-Crosser 2.2 HDi (built with engine from MITSUBISHI OUTLANDER) from 120.000 till 160.000km, spirited driving millage,mostly highways, driving around 120-140km/h (sometimes till 160km/h but sometimes 100km/h), all 4 were ST5. Very stable, comfortable , you have a filling of good control, especially in curves in dry even better in wet , very quiet, wearing HORRIBLE - all good characteristics are only till 25.000km, after that it is a dangerous tire only good in cities and /or low speeds under 100km/h on motorways. WEARING was very evident especially on the edges ,but I guess the factor is the fast driving. Looking now amongst Nokian Line SUV (bad reviews on wear or becoming oval), Toyo Proxis CF2 SUV (bad reviews for not being stable over 120km/h), Goodyear EfficientGrip SUV (nice in general) , Falken Avenzis 510 SUV (bad reviews for wearing) and Continental SC 6 (last is my favorite but pricey :) )

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Clio IV Sport Tourer 1.5 DCI (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 40,000 spirited miles
i fitted the tyres first time 5 years ago on my citroen xsara 1.6 i am currently on the 3rd set on my xsara and i fitted them on my clio iv too i am most certainly very pleased with it. Its good grip and long mileage fit the bill nicelly.I previously had michelin pilot on and they dryed up very fast they were slipery and wear very fast and they were a bit rougher on the bumbs.

Very good dry grip, wet grip was also good, the handling was not so excelent if I compare with some premium tyres like Bridgestone or Continental. Generallythey are good tyres, I had them for 3 summer seasons, but the last one they were just not all right anymore.
