A quick glance at the Vredestein Sportrac 5 is enough to reveal its designer connections: the tread and shoulders were conceptualised by acclaimed Italian automobile designer Giugaro. But Vredestein knows that appearance isn't everything, which is why it's also furnished this summer tyre with excellent driving characteristics - the Tuned Sidewall principle ensures superior handling and high degree of steering precision, even during sporty driving. The tyre features a particularly shallow shoulder profile and a robust build to guarantee short braking distances, even at high temperatures and in adverse weather conditions.
Rain is often a challenge for tyres - but not for the Sportrac 5. Its four longitudinal grooves and high number of lateral grooves in the shoulder area minimise the hydroplaning risk by diverting water away from the tyre. The special arrangement of grooves on the tread lowers the rolling resistance and contributes to a reduction in fuel consumption. Meanwhile, the tread is optimised to keep noise levels low and enhance driving comfort.
The Vredestein Sportrac 5 range incorporates sizes from 14 to 18 inches. It also includes SUV-suitable variants with a higher maximum load. An 2014 ADAC test of the tyre in size 195/65 R15 V demonstrated especially favourable driving characteristics on dry roads and rated the tyre as "balanced" overall, while German magazine "Autobild" awarded it a commendable grade of 2. The excellent price-performance ratio of the tyre makes it attractive to cost-conscious motorists, who can save even more by purchasing their tyres on mytyres.co.uk and benefiting from our free shipping policy on orders of two tyres or more.
