    Excellent tyre to use in dry conditions. They don't slip on turns. Behaves appropriately on wet. The car doesn't lose control when turning and you don't have to worry about aquaplanning too soon. When it comes to winter conditions, on a slightly iced road (after a night frost, for instance, I'm not talking about total ice), the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S behaves very well and grips wherever it can. Directs slush from beneath tyres efficiently. My concerns are about driving on snow, on a road covered with snow, not salted, in subzero temperatures. It's okay when I drive mildly, but any tighter maneouvres, even in slow, urban speeds ends up with digging snow. Still, details aside, I really recommend the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S.

    What to tell you? I have already done a few kilometres in winter conditions. I was surprised as it was a long time since I have driven in the winter, because even in the light winter conditions roads were black so i have never lost the control of the vehicle. This is a big plus for me! You can see that good winter tyres in combination with the appropriate adaptation of speed to the driving conditions is the best way to safety. In addition, these tyres should be appreciated for their behavior in heavily snow-covered areas - they bite well into the snow and provide excellent grip. Plus, the volume deserves it on the A+. They are quiet regardless of the surface condition! I recommend, recommend and once again RECOMMEND :)

    We had to wait quite a long time for this winter, but ultimately we had everything: icing, black ice, snow, slush, rain with snow, -14 degrees frost, blizzards, etc.... and I still don't know what's it like to slip or lose control over the vehicle... These Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S are perfect :) Perhaps they don't look as spectacular as its predecessor Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme with tread resembling the letter 'W'. They are more common - the tread is more classical, 'V'. Still, the appearance is amazing, and the ISLT system is perfectly in place, which causes that every block in the tread efficently, the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S grips the road. I highly recommend these tyres!

    Vredestein have all parameters that a winter tyre should have. Snow: like I would drive on dry, similarly on the mud. On the ice you know only spikes but with traction control you can do it. The only thing on the negative of this tyre is that it gives you a strange sound like the ship was heard but after driving a few hundred is much better. The undoubted advantage of this tyre is also the price, a tyre worth every penny I spent on it.

    For a few cars and many winter tyres I would classify this somewhere in the middle. Reading the opinions of other users quoting the names of "technology" used in these tyres, I felt a desire to share my feelings. So nothing special, the premium class is far away, but if someone is looking for tires at a reasonable price which works well in our road conditions, I can recommend it.

Product description

Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S 285/40 R22 110 W XL

The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.

Technology description: Do you expect your every-day winter tyres to provide the maximum performance no matter the weather and safety in any conditions? Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S is a response to your needs which will make your winter journeys a real pleasure. The designers used a directional tread pattern, which is very often applied in winter tyres due to its excellent properties on wet and snowy surfaces.

With the wide and deep grooves resembling the letter V, water is quickly drained and the tyre surface is dried effectively. All this reduces the risk of aquaplaning and snow planing, and you may enjoy a confident and stable drive regardless of the type of surface and weather conditions.

The life of the tyre is extended due to the use of the rubber compound enriched by polymers ensuring balanced parameters during the whole life cycle as well as an improved resistance of the tread to abrasion. As a result, Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S will serve you longer and ensure economical driving, maximum performance and safety in extreme winter conditions.

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.
