Volvo V60 D3 Tyre Review Highlights
A the the moment i have the tires for about 2000km. I drive a Volvo v60 D3 AT 163hp.
I compare them to a Contisportcontact 5 and i have to say that the vredestein are much more comfortable and a much quiter.
As for the grip, the conti's on dry were better, i didn't have a situation that the tires loosed traction at start. The ultrac satin looses traction on start on high revs but only for a split of a second. In corners I can easliy feel the car and the grip is and road feed back is ok. Probably in very aggressive driving the tire will not be as good as HP tires.
On wet i can't see any diffrences, but i try to drive safe so i can't test it on the edge of loosing grip.
Fuel consumption is at the same level as the contisport5 (C vs F) and this is the only disappoitment of it.
As for the price, I bought 4 tires for 440€ (110€ per tire). In this price I couldn't find and alternative in mid range tires.
I'm very satisfied with this purchase and if I have to i would by them again.
My car was delivered to me with Conty 5 and those were great for spirited driving but way too stiff on b-roads, junctions, steps in the city etc. Moreover, not impressive on wet. I live in Switzerland and bulk of the mileage is a weekly commute of 400+ km motorway journey weekly, plus some transfers toward the seaside and mountain trips.
GY Efficient Grip has been a sensible solution to improve comfort with no compromise for normal use. I tried both on autobahn and indeed the Conty are better when speeding. Nonetheless, found that superior there only and pretty happy of the change: comfort, wear, noise. mpg all improved in this order.
Writing about the Kumho Ecsta KU39
Driving on mostly country roads
for 6400 average
I have fitted them on my Volvo V60 MY12 and have been driving for about 6400miles and must say that I'm impressed!
They perform much better than I expected in most situations.
I have lost grip once but then I really puched the wheel to it's max!
I think I would definetlly buy these wheels again! How ever, It will be in 235/35 R19 nest time :-)
Very nice tyre, but also very expensive.
