Vredestein Snowtrac 5

The Vredestein Snowtrac 5 is a winter tyre that defies even the most extreme and unpredictable weather conditions, including wet, cold or slippery roads. Thanks to the unique sipe technology, which involves more sipes in varying shapes, orientations and profile depth, the tyre offers excellent grip on wet road surfaces, snow and ice. The solid central zone ensures extra stability for improved handling on dry and wet surfaces. The Vredestein Snowtrac 5 features Stealth Design: the longitudinal and lateral grooves in the tread comprise many different surfaces of varying formats which absorb noise, making cars quieter inside and out.

Features

  • Unique sipe technology with more sipes in a variety of shapes, directions and tread depths
  • Innovative Full Silica Compound
  • Solid zone in the centre of the tread
  • Stealth Design tread
  • Spherical tyre with stepped longitudinal grooves

Benefits

  • Exceptional grip on wet roads, snow and ice
  • Superior handling on snow and ice Reduced rolling resistance
  • Extra stability for improved handling on dry and wet road surface
  • Low interior noise: sound absorbed by the multiple surfaces in the longitudinal and lateral grooves
  • Minimal chance of aquaplaning, very strong performance on wet road surface
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
