Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme is a non-studdable performance winter tire for automobiles.
Giugiaro Design and Safety
With the Wintrac Xtreme, a high performance touring tire designed for high-end sedans, Vredestein put safety and design as priority. The first winter tire to be developed in partnership with Giugiaro Design, Vredestein WintracXtreme exposes a powerful look at the tread sculpture W, a lateral side with dynamic lines, and strips signed by Giugiaro. The Vredestein Wintrac X-treme provides comfort, a significantly smoother ride and a great handling, stability and traction on ice and snow, at a very competitive price.
Innovative Technology for Performance Exceptional Winter
When designing Wintrac XTreme, Vredestein has made sipping technology a priority. Thus, the straight sipes of its tread provide excellent grip on snow, while the zigzag sips at the shoulders guarantee perfect handling.
The high-level performance of the Vredestein Wintrac X-Treme on snowy roads is also great thanks to the self-cleaning grooves and sculpture W-shape of the tread. Stability and high-speed handling precision, for their part, are provided by the stiff sidewalls and the special construction of the carcass.
A Rubber Compound Designed to Optimize Traction on Wet Surfaces
Incorporating Optimum Silica Processing technology to manufacturing gum, the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme tire assures good performance in snow and ice conditions, improving traction on wet surfaces and increasing resistance to hydroplaning.
The Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme is designed to provide an equal distribution of pressure on the tire footprint, which keeps noise levels lower during the entire lifespan of the tire for a remarkably pleasant comfortable ride. It also features a rim protector against accidental damage.
The Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme winter tire complies with Quebec's Bill 42.
