Tyre Test Highlights

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 76% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo Giulietta (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 16,000 spirited miles
Got hese fitted 2 years ago, front and back and am still quite impressed with them.

First and foremost, comfort and silence, if this is what you're after, you should definately get these. 2nd, the wear is amazing, my previous Bridgestones were already long gone and these still have 5/6mm on them after guess slightly more than 20k km of which even 1 trackday.

On the trackday though their less strong points came forward as in my opinion it's lacking feedback as well as pure grip, it's not particularly bad but could for sure be better.

All together, it's quite a good alrounder with the emphasys on comfort.

Given 73% (breakdown) while driving a BMW 320 d (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 11,184 average miles
I have bought a set of these tires in 2015 and i have used them on a 1500kg BMW 320d E46. The best thing for this tire is noise and comfort. They are very quiet ! But, compare to Vredestein UltracSessanta, the dry and wet grip is not that good. The wear is good, in 18.000 km, it;s very little. But i don't drive very sporty. If you want quiet tires, buy them. Else, if you drive sporty, buy another tires. UltracSessanta, Conti SC5 or anything else.
