Writing about the Vredestein Quatrac
Driving on a combination of roads
for 5600 average
I have replaced the Conti EcoContact 6 with Vredestein Quatrac on Opel Mokka B. Since the tyre dimension is 215/65 R16 there cannot be much road feedback and also the small SUV on baloon tyres is not exactly a track machine.
In general, the noise is almost the same as with ecocontacts. The fuel consumption is very reasonable but I have no exact numbers to back my claim, as I have not been driving on ecocontacts long enough. The grip is very reasonable in the dry and surprisingly good in the wet. On icy roads the tyres feel very safe, similar to winter tyres. I have no experience in the snow yet.
Overall, I am very happy with the purchase. For everyday driving the tyres are great. So far, I have driven approximately 9000 km on them. The non-driven rear tyres look still new and the front ones have some worn edges of the tread blocks but the tread depth is almost as new. I would definitely recommend them.
