Vredestein No.1 in Tyre Tests
Auto Express has completed its longest and largest ever test, confirming Vredestein as the number one, for the third year in a row.
The assessment put 16 different brands of tyres to the test, and nine different aspects of tyre performance were measured, including wet and dry braking characteristics, rolling resistance, cornering ability and resistance to aquaplaning.
The well-known motoring magazine described Vredestein’s Sportrac 2 as a “superb wet weather all rounder”. The tests confirmed that from a speed of 62 mph a car on Vredestein tyres stops quicker than any other and that on a wet road the Sportrac 2 beats the poorest performer by four car lengths.
“We are extremely proud that Vredestein tyres have again been shown to be the best quality tyre on the UK market,” commented Vredestein UK’s MD, Bert Stellinga. “It’s great to see the result of all the work that our engineers, our product development people and our partners Giugiaro Design have done in developing the Vredestein range of tyres.”
The magazine did not hide its surprise that the tyre, which performed so well in wet conditions could also perform well in the dry, writing: “It was a shock to see wet weather ace Vredestein at the top again.”
