Volkswagen Golf GTI Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta given 100% (225-40-18-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 15000 average miles
The Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta is a truly fantastic tyre. They stick you to the road in wet and dry conditions and are quite long lasting, depending on your style of driving of course.

I'm due a new set of tires and will most definitely be going for 4 Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's. They blow alot og big brand tires like Goodyear Eagle F1s (GSD3s) straight out of the water

Awesome Tyre!

Writing about the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta given 100% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 12500 spirited miles
Lasted 3years (8mounths/year) and 12500 miles of spirited driving.
Rotation was performed in the beginning of each summer.
I had the XL version = stiffer sidewalls.

Compared to the other tires owned/tested:
(PZeros,Eagle F1 assy,T1r and SP Maxx)

- dry grip on straight's: 100%
- dry grip on bends : 95% (t1r was a little better)
- dry braking: 100%

- wet grip on straight's: 100%
- wet grip on bends: 100% (on the same spot as eagleF1)
- wet braking: 90% (under F1assy and over the rest)

I don't care about wear or noise to much, performance being the priority, but are wearing great for a performance tire and the noise is good too.


If they will keep making them in Holland, definitely buy again. I am sick of all major companies manufacturing in china but still requesting A LOT of money for their products...

Writing about the Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta given 100% (225-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 19500 spirited miles
Tires lasted 3years (7 months/year) and 19500 miles before replacement.
Great grip,wet or dry, felt like on rails on tight bends, ride is quite comfortable, great road feedback (I own the XL version)... what can I say,
had PZero's and EagleF1 Assy's before and this beats them on every aspect.

Made only in the Netherlands, this is a top quality product.
Will buy again.


Oh, it looks awesome too :D

Writing about the Goodyear UltraGrip 7 Plus given 100% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 2000 spirited miles
I've never used winter tyres before and thought they were just 4 snow but this is amazing dry wet and physics defying in snow!!!!!

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Super Sport given 96% (225-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 9000 spirited miles
Driving a Golf MKV GTI and changed from Dunlop Z1* to PSS 3 months ago. The PSS out performed the Z1* in all ways. The dry and wet grip give tremendous confidence at corners and yet provide sufficient progressiveness. Ran for 15000km already and still see it can run for another 20000km or so.

Writing about the Fulda Carat Assuro given 96% (195-65-15-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 45000 spirited miles
I'm 48 and these are the best tires I have ever had for cornering and general performance. Plenty of warning before they break in the corners. Reasonable in the rain and only hydroplane when conditions are extreme. In snow they have gotten me home but generally run studded snow tires on the front. I want to buy another set but having difficulty finding anyone who carries them.

Writing about the Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 given 96% (225-40-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 3000 spirited miles
Amazing tyre! Far better than Conti Sport Contact 2's and 3's I have had! Car chipped to 240bhp, the Conti's would spin in 2nd on a wet road under full power, the PS2 just grip - I'm blown away by the difference. They are more comfortable and quiet by far, yet give amazing feedback around the bends. Straight line breaking wet or dry is spot on as well. 3000 miles of mixed driving and no noticeable drop in performance or tread depth. I've had the Conti's on 3 Golf's now, just replacing them with the same each time - what a mistake I wish I had made the move to PS2's earlier! Can't recommend them enough and no I don't work for Michelin before you ask - just pleased to be able to report about a tyre the performs far better than the rest (on a front wheel drive Golf Mk5)!
