Dutch tyre manufacturer Vredestein is already preparing its winter sports equipment. The tyre manufacturer has just presented the Wintrac Xtreme S, which logically replaces the Wintrac Xtreme itself. The new tyre obviously promises better all round performance than its predecessor.

This is an ultra high performance winter tyre, designed as a sports tyre to fit the large diameter rims on many of the world’s fastest cars. Designed for high performance, it comes with a high speed rating (Y: 300 km/h).

The Wintrac Xtreme S features Internal Sipe Locking Technology to provide maximum stability in the rain and on snow free surfaces. A particular focus has been given to the structure of tyre sipes and their deformation under dynamic use.  

Superior grip on snow covered roads

According to Vredestein, this tyre takes performance to an even higher level on snow, ice and slush whether in terms of grip or steering precision. The tread features two types of sipes: Straight sipes on the central block are designed to deliver maximum traction and shorter braking distances on snow and ice, whereas zig-zag sipes in the shoulders guarantee superior road holding on slippery surfaces. Finally, a last type of groove is there to efficiently drain water and ensure optimal grip on wet surfaces.

With the new and improved tread compound, the Wintrac Xtreme S also offers increased durability and a lower rolling resistance.

Finally, the tyre was developed in partnership with Giugiaro to enhance the style element, like all the latest sports tyre produced by Vredestein.




The Vredenstein Wintrac Xtreme S will be available in twelve different sizes for 16 to19 inch rims.
