Better than before

The Vredestein Wintrac Pro tires replace the 2013 Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S model. Internal tests of the manufacturer showed that in the size 225/50 R17 98V XL the new product of the winter season 2018/2019 surpasses its predecessor in a number of parameters. Thus, the handling on snow became 15% better, and the braking efficiency on wet surfaces was improved by 10%. In addition, the speed index Y (up to 186 mph) has become available for many sizes of the model range.

Wintrac Pro Tread design

The Wintrac Pro features an optimized tread pattern with deep, centrally converging grooves and three-dimensional sipes that stabilize the tire's behavior on snow, especially when cornering. Horizontal sipes in the center of the tread improve directional stability and acceleration, as well as reducing braking distances.

The Vredestein Wintrac Pro's wide tread creates a stable flat contact patch with the road surface, which is very important under high loads.

Special polymers and high silica content in the tread compound improve handling and braking on wet pavement, snow, and ice.

The Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake (3PMSF) pictogram ensures that the Vredestein Wintrac Pro's performance meets acceptable requirements for use on snowy roads.
