Vredestein’s New 4 Xtreme
This week saw the official launch of Vredestein’s first high performance SUV winter tyre the Wintrac 4 Xtreme.
The manufacturer has transferred the characteristics of its passenger car tyre Wintrac Xtreme to the 4 Xtreme in an attempt to enter the growing 4×4 tyre market, a segment Vredestein describes as “a phenomenon.”
Giugiaro Design was again utilised to develop the tyre’s tread; a w-shaped pattern with taut lines and a powerful appearance.
Predominantly an on-road tyre, the 4 Xtreme’s compound of Optimum Silica Processing “guarantees” the tyre’s winter qualities as well as some all-terrain characteristics.
The tyre is available in speed ratings H and V, up to 131 and 150 mph respectively.
