Top Vredestein Ultrac Satin Review

Given 93% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen golf 2.0 gt tdi (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 1,000 spirited miles
Dealer oredred these especially for my car, being so new he hadn't any in stock. In the past I've used Michelin Pilot Sport 3s and Goodyear Eagle F1 AS2. These Veedesteins are up there with the best. Massive improvement over the Bridgestone Potenzas that were on before - much more comfortable, less noise, much better grip. Will definitely buy these again.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Jaguar XF (245/45 R18) on mostly motorways for 60 spirited miles
This is the best tyre I have ever put on a car! Smooth, fantastic grip in the wet, inspires confidence on all road surfaces and the wear is unbelievable. I have had them on my Jaguar XF for over a year now and covered over 60,000 miles and they are still going strong with lots of wear left on them. Will certainly buy again.

Given 77% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 147 JTD (215/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
I posted a review a few days ago but i can't find it.... Mayby Vredestein delete this ??

I speak about this Vredestein Ultrac Satin. 215-45-17 Extra Load tyre.

I'm not happy with this tyre. I Bought it last week but i have to regret. The side-wall is very soft.

I'f i go with a normal speed around the corner, there is no stress. No complains. When i have more speed on the same corner, the tyres are very weak. The side of the tire feeds into a bend which makes the car feel swaby. It feels like you have worn shock absorbers, or at least the rear of the car wants to slip away.

Maybe I can exchange the tires for better at the garage

Alfa Romeo (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 1,500 spirited miles
I ordered these tires, Vredestein Ultrac Satin 215-45-17 XL for my Alfa Romeo 147 115hp. I have these tires on the rear wheels. At the front i have Kumho Escta Le sport 215-45-17 XL and these tires are very good on dry asphalt, very grip and you can hardly bend. But in aquaplanning, they lose grip so you do not feel safe. That's why I wanted other tires. Thus ordered the Vredestein tires.

The Ultrac Satin has very good grip on dry asphalt and on wet roads. With aquaplaning no more unsafe feeling. Only the tires have too much comfort ... In fast turns, the tire feeds into the side wall, giving you an unsafe feeling in the curve. Maybe if I pump them up to 2.7 / 2.8 (now 2.5 bar) it drives a bit better. It's especially annoying if the front tires do not engage and the rear tires do.

Given 80% (breakdown) while driving a Volkswagen 1.8 20vT Sport (235/40 R18 V) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
Tires are very good for their cost! The only problem is they are just a bit louder (not too much to worry about), very soft so they dont last a lot but handling is amazing, as well as wet and dry road grip!
