The Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S tire is a premium winter tire with sporty looks and exceptional ice traction, snow traction and grip on cold dry roads. The innovative sipe technology provides full-depth zigzag sipes in the tread blocks. This features helps to deliver shorter braking distance and optimal traction on snow and ice throughout the life of the tire, not just while new. The zigzag shape of the sipes reduce deformation of the tread blocks, and contributes to tires that wear longer. Another benefit of the Internal Sipe Locking Technology (ISLT) is improved steering precision and superior traction in all conditions. You get excellent water evacuation with low noise levels from the extra wide circumferential grooves, so no matter what winter conditions you encounter, the Vredestein Wintrac Xtreme S will keep you safe on the road.
