A Combination of Roads for 3,100 Average milesRenault Clio 182 cup
Tyres are actualy good. First i ordered Contis TS860, but they were not in stock, so i gave Vredestein a try. My car is a bit sporty, so a good winter tyre is very crucial. I made about 3000 miles with them so here are my + and - for this tyre.
+ very good grip in snow (it handles perfectly, driving in about 10-15cm of snow is easy peasy for those)
+ very cheap to buy (i bought them for abot 70euros a piece- which is a real bargain (ContisTS860 were about 25euros more per piece)
+ wet handling is average, not the best, but it doesent leaves you between cornering with high speed on wet road... i didnt expect that the "tree" profile gives such a good grip.
- for me the biggest suprise was how loud this tyre is... i have a loud exhaust system, but contact with different types of roads (even after not so many miles driven) let you know that this tyre is not the silent one. even on the motorway tyre gives you those sounds and vibrations.
- let me say, comfort could be better, it clearly "eats" all bumps on the road but the filling when driven is quite average... yes i know i have very low car, and yes i know i have sporty springs but still...i expected more.
- and finally dry grip... for easy drive tyre gives you confidence in corners...but sometimes you have to corner hard, and there are clearly some huge problems with those on. They are too soft on the edges, so that doesent allow you sporty driving...
So, if i could say only few words about this tyre... CHEAP, WINTER PRO, THE BEST VALUE/PRICE IN THE SEGMENT..
I would deffinetly look after Vredestein tyres in the future :)
