Vredestein Quatrac

Vredestein Quatrac is characterized as a tire with a well-balanced performance, which, among other things, does less environmental damage by providing fuel economy achieved through reduced weight and lower rolling resistance.

The design of the shoulder areas was developed to improve summer performance, while the central section of the tread, due to multiple lamellas, improves winter traction. The number of tread blocks was optimized depending on the specific tire size, while the V-shaped tread pattern with increased depth improves handling response on wet and snow-covered roads.

Thanks to the increased contact patch and stiffer shoulder blocks, the Vredestein Quatrac dry handling response was improved by 12% compared to the previous-generation model, the Vredestein Quatrac 5. At the same time, the silica-based compound and the V-shaped design improved handling performance by 20% and wet braking by 10%. In addition, special biting edges, positioned at various angles, ensured a 5% improvement in snow handling.

The tread compound was also enriched by a substantial inclusion of terpene resins (according to the tire maker, they improve the effectiveness), while the lowered tread-to-void ratio and optimized tire profile led to a more even distribution of loads, due to which the tire’s wear also became more even, and the mileage rose by more than 20%. And, finally, the rolling resistance was lowered by 10% compared to the previous model.
