The Sportrac 5 is an extremely quiet and comfortable tyre, developed in collaboration with Giugiaro. The tyre excels in terms of stability and sporty driving ability, which translates into excellent handling on both wet and dry road surfaces. The even surface pressure with low air ratio, combined with asymmetric grooves, ensures optimum grip and a short braking distance.

Subtle grooves in the middle section of the tread with an optimised tread depth also make the tyre even more energy efficient. In addition, the tyre has a perfectly even wear pattern. Along with a low noise level thanks to its smart wide tread patterns and longitudinal grooves, the Sportrac 5 is the ideal tyre in this sector.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

I found the oversteer From these tyres is quite excessive. The tyre fitter warned me at the time of fitting that he had never fitted a tyre with such a soft wall and suggested I might encounter cornering issues, unfortunately he was right. I replaced Continental’s following an online recommendation but I think I will be returning to Continental tyres in future.

i love Vredestien Tyres, but the front tyre need replacing at a short usage, i expected them to last a little longer. i drive mostly on the motorway. performance is great.

Put all 4 tyres on as part of major service on my Lotus Elan M100. Couldn't believe the remarkable performance improvement, especially road holding. Awesome
