Top Vredestein Snowtrac 3 Review

Given 84% while driving a Volkswagen Golf mk6 GTD (215/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 2,000 average miles
Purchased these back in September and have had them on the car since October. Found that they are quieter than the standard Bridgestone tyres and have improved fuel economy by an average 4mpg. In the snow these tyres are excellent, never once have I been stuck they always pull you out of even relatively deep snow and give you a lot more confidence in braking and cornering. I'd recommend these tyres to anyone they do everything Vredestein say they can and even better than that they give you a bit of confidence in knowing what the car will do. Will definitely buy again but that may be a while away as they are wearing fairly slowly so I should get another 2 winters out of them.

Given 83% while driving a Skoda Fabia 1.2 (195/55 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 38,000 spirited miles
Have this snowtrac 3 set on a 1.2 tdi fabia Skoda power chipped to 95HP and it performs as expected in mixed winter conditions. So well we did not refit the original all weather Dunlop Eco tyres. So using these exceptional Dutch winter tyres all year round.
We had prior very positive experience with the Snowtrac2 fitted on a Suzuki Alto 1.1GL, slightly upgraded in power. The humble lightweight car was handling like a mild racetrack vehicle on snow and ice. So predictable and grippy tyres that other road users where like standing obstacles. Lots of fun that was. So according to the weight balance of the car it is fitted on this tyre shines very bright indeed.

Given 93% while driving a Ford Fiesta (165/70 R13) on a combination of roads for 9,000 average miles
I bought these second hand for my wife's car and I've been amazed. The wet grip is really positive and far better than the 2 new winter tyres I added this year. The car has loads of grip, when it does break free it's progressive and accompanied by the noise and feedback you get from dry understeer. In the dry they are still good, they don't go spongy as you'd expect from a really soft tyre. I expect the wear will be higher and 2 of the set I bought were ruined by a tracking problem on the car they came from, make sure your suspension is up to scratch! That said they've already done more miles than the tyres her car came with new but these are winter-only use or course.

These tyres inspire confidence, the car is predictable and sure-footed, they are a bit noisy and fuel consumption seems higher but that's the price you pay for getting around in the bad weather. This is the second year they've been on and I'm 100% happy with them.

In fact I wish I'd fitted these to my car rather then the Pirelli's I've got.

Given 90% while driving a Renault Clio 1.5 dCi 86 (175/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Dependable tyres, good grip in the snow, the wear is normal, the noise is lower than other (more expensive) winter tyres such as Michelin Primacy Alpin, fuel consumption is around the same level as with the top rated Dunlop Bluresponse summer tyres. Recommended for value, especially if on a discount.

Given 100% while driving a Ford Fiesta (195/55 R15 T) on mostly town for 3,200 spirited miles
Made in the Nederlands (not china like a lot of "premium" brands), great grip on wet/snow and good grip in spring/autumn too!
