With a rich heritage spanning 115 years, Vredestein, the distinguished Dutch brand hailing from the Netherlands, is distinctly European – born of the continent’s essence and attuned to global standards.

Vredestein Tires Earn High Praise from Automotive Experts and Racing Professionals

Fuelled by its European legacy and propelled by a vision to produce ultimate driving experience, Vredestein stands at the forefront of advancing global tyre technology.

In the realm of high-performance tyres, the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti has emerged as a true champion, garnering widespread acclaim and accolade from prestigious magazines. Renowned for its exceptional capabilities and innovative design, this tyre has not only earned the trust of discerning drivers but also captured the attention and admiration of experts in the automotive industry.

Vredestein Malaysia Area Manager Calvin Yong said the Ultrac Vorti, which was manufactured in the Netherlands, was an ultra-high-performance tyre born from a collaboration with the renowned Italian design company Giugaro and created to elevate a motorist driving experience. “Featuring a sleek and sporty look, the Ultrac Vorti stands out with its slim design and distinctive asymmetric profile. This model represents the latest evolution of the successful Ultrac Vorti line under the Dutch brand Vredestein. When changing to new generation series, rather than altering the tread pattern, the engineers focused on increasing the stiffness of the sidewalls and shoulder areas.”

The Ultrac Vorti, he stated, had a 13-per cent larger bead area and stiffer shoulder, which enhanced handling and manoeuvrability as well as provided precise and responsive performance while cornering. It has an asymmetric tread design and high-traction tread compound for increased grip in dry and wet conditions, and features like a stable central rib and Z-shaped slit-like sipes for precise steering. The tyre’s composition and wide circumferential grooves efficiently prevented hydroplaning to ensure strong grip in diverse weather conditions.

“Its advanced design contributes to improved braking distances, handling and grip. Navigating through wet conditions becomes a breeze with the tyre. Its excellent water dispersal capabilities ensure optimal traction on wet surfaces to promise a secure and confident drive. The tyre also offers a comfortable and quiet ride, thanks to Vredestein’s special tyre compound and modern tyre design. The even pressure distribution in the contact area minimises tread wear and allows the tyre to maintain optimal performance throughout its service life. Furthermore, lower fuel consumption and extended tyre life are achieved through next generation body compounds to reduce rolling resistance,” he added.

Thanks to this tyre, he stressed, powerful sports cars could deliver steering precision, reliable grip and a high level of safety during high-speed driving.

“The Ultrac Vorti has earned a multitude of accolades and firmly established itself as a top-tier summer tyre. In Autobild‘s extensive testing in 2020 and subsequent evaluations by other organisations, the tyre secured an impressive #60 ranking out of 943 summer tyres. In the 2022 AutoBild Sports Cars UHP Summer Tyre Test, the Vredestein Ultrac Vorti further solidified its excellence by finishing joint first and surpassing all competitors in the wet handling test. This victory was reiterated in the Auto Bild Sportscars 2022: Summer Tire Test R18, in which the Ultrac Vorti clinched the top spot due to its well-balanced performance. The Ultrac Vorti also achieved first place in a summer tyre group test conducted by AutoBild, securing the title of ‘exemplary’ among ten other products.”

In a separate category, he continued, Autobild‘s ‘mixed tyres’ examination – evaluating performance with two different sizes – the Ultrac Vorti secured an impressive second place. Comprehensive tests in various conditions, including wet and dry surfaces as well as meticulous analysis of braking, aquaplaning and rolling resistance capabilities, showcased the consistent superiority of the Ultrac Vorti. Particularly in wet handling elements, this tyre outperformed the competition to confirm its reliability under challenging conditions.

Partner with Mansory

Vredestein has a partnership with Mansory, a German luxury car ‘tuner’. He pointed out that Rolls-Royce, Bentley, Bugatti, McLaren, Porsche and BMW were a few of the many brands that received a unique and high-profile customisation from Mansory. The predominantly wealthy customer base was not just looking for a unique and spectacular car but also had extremely stringent requirements — just like Mansory itself.

“Because only the very best is good enough, the German specialist is increasingly opting for the Ultra High Performance tyres from Vredestein. This includes the fitment of a 24-inch version of Ultrac Vorti to the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, Urus Venatus wide body, Brabus Rocket 900, Bentley Continental GT-based Mansory Sanguis and Coastline-based on the Rolls-Royce Cullinan.”

The Vredestein Ultrac Vorti is currently available in two sizes – 295/30ZR24 and 355/25ZR24.

Based on the tyre brands of 2022 that were recommend by consumer reports, he proudly stated that Vredestein was ranked number two.

Boasting more than a century of tyre innovation, Vredestein stands as one of the world’s oldest tyre brands and draws inspiration from its rich European heritage. He said Vredestein evolved into a leader in top-tier tyre design and manufacturing and was dedicated to crafting the ‘perfect driving experience’.

“Since its inception in 1908, Vredestein has pioneered exceptional tyre products, from the very first tyre in 1910 to the cutting-edge high-performance tyre technology of today. The brand’s commitment to pioneering tyre technology is evident in its track record of gold medals, world records and a continual reinvention of safe, seamless and precision driving.”

To provide the added peace of mind, customers enjoy a one-year unconditional warranty from the date of purchase, covering damages beyond repair caused by road hazards during normal driving. Vredestein also offers a five-year limited warranty from the purchase date that addresses manufacturing defects in workmanship or materials.

Vredestein prioritises sustainability and eco-friendliness; tyres are engineered for fuel efficiency to reduce carbon emissions and contribute to a greener planet. This eco-conscious approach appeals to environmentally responsible consumers looking to minimise their carbon footprint. Additionally, Vredestein tyres are endorsed by automotive experts and racing professionals, reinforcing the brand’s reputation for superior quality and performance. In summary, Vredestein tyres are different from the others due to their exceptional performance, durability, safety features, environmental responsibility and widespread industry recognition,” he concluded.
