Top Vredestein Ultrac Vorti Review

Alfa Romeo (225/40 R18 W) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
I had these tyres on my Alfa Romeo GT 1.9 JTDm remapped to 185hp.
I think the best tyre on my 18 inches rims.
Excellent comfort, grip on wet and dry roads.
Much better than my old Pirelli PZero Rosso and Bridgestone Potenza!
Absolutely to buy it again

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Audi a5 3.0 tdi quattro sport (255/35 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 30,000 average miles
My last review on these tyres before replacement and they have done exactly 30,000 miles and I switched the tyres back to front at 16,000 miles to get the maximum mileage out of these tyres. The fronts are on approx 2.8mm and the rears are 2.8mm also there or there abouts.

As the tyres have worn they have become slightly jittery in the wet but that is expected with threads dropping below 3mm. They have been extremely comfortable, dry and wet grip has generally been good, however the fuel consumption is at the lower end with newer more fuel efficient tyres in the market.

I bought these for £116 fitted about a year and a half ago but I have seen them now for almost £150 which is a bit pricey considering Goodyear Eagle F1 are also the same price and better.

I am now looking to replace with AVON ZZ5 which are are now £116 fitted and considering they have been tried and tested on the Audi S5 I know they will be excellent value for money.

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz CLS 320 (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Purchased these tyres to replace a set of Falken ZIEX914's (had two sets of these on this car). Ive been totally happy with the Falkens apart from one issue with these tyres and that is poor rim-protection for the notoriously easily scuffed 5 spoke alloys on the post 2008 facelifted CLS. After a bit of research I opted for the Vredestein's based on their chunky in built rim protectors. A set of four tyres including fitting came in at a reasonable £460 at my local tyre fitters. First impressions are good. The Vredesteins are a sportier tyre than the Falkens and have a stiffer sidewall that gives a slightly firmer ride - not too firm though and the car is still supremely comfortable on a long journey. The CLS is a big, heavy, powerful car but is surprisingly agile and I have noted sharper handling particularly when cornering with the Vredesteins when compared to the Falkens. Dry grip seems on a par with the Falkens and they are similar with overall quietness - road noise is low apart from on poor quality road surfaces. They seem to be fine in the wet though I have noticed that the traction control cuts in earlier than I would have expected when pulling away sharply on damp surfaces. Wet and dry braking seems fine too - no problems noted thus far. Too early to pass comment on wear yet as Ive only done 1200 miles on them:- Id be surprised though to get significantly better or worse than the 16k Ive consistently had for the rears and 18k for the fronts from previous sets (Falken, Bridgestone and Continental). And yes, the rim-protection is excellent on these tyres - Ive touched the kerb a couple of times already and the extra protection has saved me! Recommended at the price.

Given 92% (breakdown) while driving a Opel astra j 1.6 turbo (245/40 R18) on a combination of roads for 35,000 average miles
very descent tyre.
good grip and response on both wet and dry.
35000 and i think that they're still holding a bit longer
i would definitely buy them again.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A6 S line (240/40 R18 W) on mostly country roads for 500 average miles
Replaced the Goodyear's who wear worn for a new set of vorti's on the front.
Great tyre! Good feedback en low noise. Tyres gives a save feeling on wet and dry. Cheap in comparing with other first class brands.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Audi a5 3.0 tdi quattro sport (255/35 R19 W) on mostly motorways for 18,000 average miles
I have done 18k now on these tyres and have just rotatated them front to back to try and maximise the life of the tyres. The rears were on 6mm and the fronts were on 4mm before the switch and evenly worn. I maybe should have rotated them at 10k intervals to get the best results.

Dry grip is as good as any other premium tyre, wet grip is decent as the tyres are rated as B and the tyres are progressive on the limit. They have been very comfortable and I am impressed with the wear rate. I am realistically looking at approx 25k before the tyres get to about 2-3mm all round which is when i intend to change.

Some reviews on here quoting 40k out of a set im not quite sure how that figure was achieved, as i do mostly motorway driving which is best for the tyres and gives best longlivety. They are excellent tyres and highly recommended however mpg has fallen slighly as the tyres are quite heavy but I would buy again despite this. I have noticed they have increased to £130 each up from £108 so I think ill for Michellin PS4 next as i like to try different brands.
