Tyre Test Highlights

2010 Autocar Tyre Test - FWD - 1st of 6 tyres

2010 EVO Tyre Test - 3rd of 9 tyres

2011 Auto Express Ultra High Performance Tyre Test - 4th of 10 tyres

  • Overall - As the only directional tyre on test, the Vredestein Ultrac Cento was always going to have a strong performance in the wet, and it delivered by finishing second only to the Pirelli. Unfortunately the now-dated directional design struggled in the dry finishing ninth on the handling circuit where it lacked grip and balance.

Top Vredestein Ultrac Cento Review

Given 79% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo S80 2.4 petrol (225/50 R17 R) on a combination of roads for 20 spirited miles
Impressed with these types, good fuel economy, lasted 20,000 miles on a big Volvo, good grip too. My last types on this car were Goodyears and the Vredesteins lasted a touch longer and gripped just as well.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Audi 2.0tdi 140 sline sportback (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 20,000 spirited miles
Nice premium quality tires on a good price. Perfect summer all-rounders. Comfort is overall good. They are very good at high speed, also on wet, and in comparison to Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta they wear much less.

Given 68% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 525i (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
The tires are made of strong rubber, therefor they last long BUT also make terrible road noise. I know they supposed to be quiet but infact they make very uncomfortable noise, i replaced mine beacuse i couldnt bare the noise in my quiet BMW, i had 225/55/16.
