Writing about the Vredestein Quatrac Pro
Driving on mostly country roads
for 2500 average
Review from Switzerland:
Quatrac Pro 275/45/20 on a Porsche Cayenne S. (4x4 , V8)
First of all I need to say It`s so cool to see that lots of Quatrac Pro drivers experience the smooth ride (because this is what every driver wants , no ?)
I explain my decision for the Quatrc Pro and also why I bought this while living in Switzerland and having a tinyhouse in the Swiss Alps (Lauterbrunnen - Grindelwald Area)
I`m also a tyre-freak same es John and many others here :) I have read a lot of reviews , here but also in the German magazines (Autobild) from the beginning this Quatrac Pro has been a very high rated tyre it`s not the best for snow (that`s right) but it safe for snow and that`s maybe the most important part.
Here in Switzerland they are a bit old fashion - they better play safe and lots of people drive with full winter in winter, and full sommer in sommer, but as you all know the climate can change quickly.. stronger snowfall (earlier as exspected) or `later` then expected as we have lived 4 years right in the middle of the Alps at that time I bought Quatrac 5 on our Land Rover Discovery Sport, I have driven that tyre in full snow, mountain roads everything and I was flabberguested how good the Quatrac 5 was on our Land Rover.
As we own now an heavy Cayenne S (with V8 and 4x4) (2008) I was looking for 1 set of tyres which keep us safe all year long and most important --> with a smooth and compfy ride and which will do a good job in the wet and I need to admit,... the look / design of the Quatrac Pro is really good! I had the CrossClimate+ on our A3 but that Tank-Pattern (V-shape) I never liked it to be honest..
So I decided to go for the Quatrac Pro (based on good experiences with the Quatrac 5) and I`m very positieve about this tyre.
Smooth, comfy, looks great, fuel alright everthintg good:
The only test I haven`t done yet with the Porsche is driving in snow (this will be a challange cause we have 275/45/20) but as they predict snow for next weekend I will update with a short Snow-Review.
The Quatrac Pro is driving very comfy, sporty as well and looks fantastisc! knowing that the Quatrac Pro is really really good in the wet I think this is for every person who don`t like to change the wheels and want to be safe all year long.
It all depends on in what area you live, what car you drive (rwd,fwd,awd) and also what do you expect from a tyre.
We don`t go racing in winter, so we will be safe with the Quatrac, if you like to race in snow conditions then of course the Wintrac Pro is a much better option but: the Quatrac Pro has a lot of potential.
I will update soon with a Snow-Review-Update.
Kind Regards from Switzerland.
