Looking to give the motorists an opportunity to use one and the same set of tires in any weather conditions, Vredestein developed its first all-season tire model of the UHP class — Vredestein Hypertrac, designed specifically for the North American market.
The coming of the new model allowed the company to extend the Vredestein UHP tire line up to 300 sizes, which makes it the largest in the industry. The line includes the summer model Ultrac Vorti, the winter model Wintrac Pro, the all-weather Quatrac Pro, and now the all-season Hypertrac.
When creating Vredestein Hypertrac tires, the designers took into account a wide variety of climates in North America, the main task being to ensure excellent wet performance because rainfall is inherent in most of the continent throughout the year. Prototypes of the model were tested in different parts of the USA, as well as in Finland.
Remarkable is the fact that Vredestein Hypertrac is manufactured at the Apollo Vredestein tire plant in Hungary. Currently, this model is only available in 38 sizes with speed indexes W, Y, Z, V, and H, covering a range of fitting diameters from 16 to 20 inches, which, nevertheless, covers 51% of the tire aftermarket.
Hypertrac is one of a series of new Vredestein models with a local focus on the North American market, for which this tire maker is promising to launch a new model every three months. In 2020, the company also intends to release a new all-terrain SUV tire model, a Highway Terrain tire, and a new tire model for passenger cars and crossovers.
