Volvo V40 D3 Polestar upgraded Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Vredestein Ultrac Satin given 91% (205-50-17-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 1500 spirited miles
Have had my V40 D3 Polestar for three years and run on Pirelli Cinturato P7 from new. An OK tyre by lacked road feel, response sluggish and a very noisy tyre.
In my nearly sixty years of driving the widest range of cars/quads/bikes/buggies tried most tyres in most conditions and have an interested (and survivalist) knowledge and feel of what suites my positive style and my transport.
Had Vredestain Cento on a previous Volvo and suited well, but got dated. Replaced the Cinturatos with the Ultrac Satin in the autumn - what an improvement. The feel and response is crisp, feedback immediate, confident in bends and braking and road noise is greatly reduced/almost eliminated (one of the quietest tyres I've had). Bit early to assess wear rates at 1,500 miles in, but no immediate concerns. And a big bonus is that I am also getting a consistent improvement in fuel consumption of around 4 to 5% with very mixed city, rural and motorway driving.
A big "congratulations" to Vredestein from me.
