    Vredestein tyres are great! No way you can make the car equipped to slide while turning and spin while starting despite high horse power. Vredestein Sportrac 5 causes no trouble while braking. Vredestain is a bit worse on wet terrain - but no reason to worry. All in all if somebody likes fast riding Vredestein Sportrac 5 is ideal especially that price and quality are acceptable to everybody. Vredestein is produced in Holland and not in China - this also matters. I can't say anything more about other parameters cuz I don't use any other tyres in my car.

    Nice design, looks great. very good traction in the rain or in dry. ABS turned on few times on greavy ground. Water dissperasion 5, durability 5. Fulda Ecocontrol HP were quickly put to the rear cuz of great wear. Vredestein are still as if they were new. Tyre quality is very good - designers made their best. Holland rules! Tyre index should be at least h or V and t for winter tyres. I had plenty of tyres and vredestein is the best option for this price range.

    I was using Pirelli till now and always was lacking something: too fast usage, too noisy and so on.... Ever since I bought Vredestein Sportrac 5 I'm more than happy =) Seriously: grip is great, noise minimal, didn't notice any usage, great adh. I had good Pirellis but planning to buy Vredesteins :)

    The tire has a clean classic tread gives good road handling even at high speeds. Considering the price of about 320 U.S. Dollars it will be difficult to find something more attractive especially for the BMW E39.

Product description

Vredestein Sportrac 5 175/50 R16 81 H XL

The Vredestein Sportrac 5 stands for superb quality and outstanding performance. The manufacturer designed the tyre specially for mid- and premium-range passenger cars, and it delivers excellent handling in everyday conditions.

The Vredestein Sportrac 5 features an asymmetric tread which ensures superb dispersal of water and protection against aquaplaning, as well as preventing eddies of water forming under the tyre in order to minimise skidding. The new rubber compound also guarantees short braking distances and superlative grip, in particular when going round corners and at high speed. The tyre is not only quiet but also wears slowly and evenly, which improves mileage performance. The model also benefits from a tread wear indicator, which means that the tyre's condition can be checked rapidly and driving safety is increased.

The tyre is the ideal solution for drivers who are looking for outstanding grip regardless of the weather and driving safety on any type of road.

In 2016, Vredestein Sportrac 5 won the ADAC test for size 185/65 R15 tyres.

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.

Noise

Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
