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 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.

Better than the continental all round and cheaper by 30%.

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.
