2023 ADAC 16 Inch Tyre Test
13th of 16 tyres
  • The VREDESTEIN WINTRAC provides inadequate steering feedback and precision on dry roads, requiring frequent corrections. The vehicle tends to oversteer during dynamic maneuvers, earning the tyre a barely satisfactory rating in limit behavior. Its braking distance is average and rated as good. On wet roads, it performs well in braking and longitudinal aquaplaning but falls short in lateral aquaplaning and handling. While the tyre offers sufficient safety reserves, it lacks precision due to inadequate integration of longitudinal and lateral forces. On winter roads, it earns a good rating for its decent braking distances and good handling, although its traction performance is only satisfactory. It secures the second-best result in the test for ice braking. Environmentally, the tyre performs well, with good projected lifespan and wear. It also scores well in fuel efficiency and weight.

2022 ADAC SUV Winter Tyre Test - 215/60 R16
7th of 17 tyres
  • Very good on ice (top mark), low fuel consumption.
  • Comparatively high wear, weaknesses on dry roads (devaluation.)
  • The Vredestein Wintrac shows weaknesses when it comes to drivability in the dry. It also wears out comparatively quickly. Even if its wet and snow properties are impressive, it does not get more than a satisfactory overall rating and is therefore one of the "recommended" tires.

2022 ADAC Winter Tyre Test - 185/65 R15
5th of 15 tyres
  • Good on dry and wet roads, good on ice.
  • Weaknesses on Snow (Devaluation.)
  • The VREDESTEIN Wintrac convinces in the dry as well as in the wet and in wear. However, it shows slight weaknesses on snow, which ultimately led to the devaluation of the overall grade and the rating "recommended".

Top 3 Vredestein Wintrac Reviews

Given 90% while driving a SEAT Cupra 300 (235/35 R19) on mostly country roads for 4,000 average miles
Been very pleased with these tyres. Give a lot of confidence in winter conditions. Very good on icy ungritted roads . Excellent on motorways in the wet .For the price , can’t recommend them enough

Given 88% while driving a Kia Motors Sportage (215/70 R16) on a combination of roads for 3,000 average miles
I couldn't find much information on these tyres online and I have bought it because for my winter tyre rims. I had a very limited choice in 215/70 r16 size. Money-wise these were quite close to the premium options like Bridgestone Blizzak but they had better speed index (H which my car manufacturer recommends as opposed to T on Blizzaks and other tyres), were more quiet and had better fuel consumption. I've read a handful of reviews before, mostly positive. I had some winter Hankooks before which I have bought with the car but these were almost 8 years old even though they were driven maybe 3000km altogether. The Hankooks were behaving like a jelly on a highway, I was not impressed. There was this feeling that rear tyres responded very slowly while changing lanes, maybe that's why it has a T speed index. Suitable maybe for the city but they don't procuce them anymore. Vredesteins felt actually better than summer Hankooks k415 (225/60 r17) the previous owner left me (please bear in mind these were old tyres as well and I'll be replacing them this season). I've used it on snow, in the wet and also on snow/ice mixture on a track and they actually kept up with the premium offerings on higher diameter rims. Absolutely no complaints for now. If you move your rim size to 17 inches you've got much more choice with similar parameters so maybe then it would be a question of price/performance ratio.
