    I have these tyres for the second season on my C5. Frankly speaking, Vredestein Wintrac 4 Xtreme is a very decent tyre, but manufactured "in a rush". The balancing on the same rims where summer tyres were fitted is a real hassle. One of the tyres notoriously exceeds the limit of 100 g. Other ones range from 25 to 45/50 g. On the same wheels the summer tyres have 5-15 grams. The tyres are clearly unevenly layered. After this season, I'm going to say goodbye to them and buy another pair of Michelins.

    Great good tires keep quiet and discharge the water. Highly recommended for those looking for tires not only on the highway or city, although both the one and the other excel as well.

    Vredestein Wintrac 4Xtreme are awesome! I bought them after being persuaded by my friend who is a fitter, I hesitated because they're not cheap. On my car, the BMW X5, they do great, after the first wave of snowfalls I can say that it is superb, on the snow it's sensational!, in the terrain and in mud it's very cool, on motorways it's quiet and provides great grip in the wet,on water it's like on dry. Overall I'm very satisfied with it, when it comes to abrasion - I can't assess it, I did only 5 thousand miles on it, but I am very pleased.

    Had these tyres on winter alloys for my Mitsubishi Outlander and they were excellent in snow. These are even better on 18" winter alloys on my Mitsubishi Shogun LWB SG4 (2014). Breaking and acceleration is even better, probably in part due to increased tyre width compared to the 215's I had on the Outlander. Fuel economy wasn't affected with these on and traction in wet or mud was very good and after doing 3500 miles, no noticeable wear,

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.


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.
