The new Vredestein tyre is rated B/C for economy.

The specific work undertaken on the tread compound and the tread design, with Z-shaped grooves and an oval footprint, improve traction as well as steering precision for unprecedented handling on wet roads.
On the braking side, compared with its predecessor the Ultrac Cento, braking distances are more than 3 meters shorter from 50 mph (80 km/h) to a standstill. Furthermore, the Ultrac Satin is rated A for wet grip.

To achieve this, in addition to the tread compound, tyre technologists have focussed on the tread, the tread foundation, the sidewall, the carcass and the rim cushion.

The Ultrac Satin is initially available in sizes from 16 to 18 inches (W and Y speed ratings) and up to 20 inches is scheduled for later.

A celebrity tyre

In partnership with the famous DJ Hardwell, a limited edition of 225 tyres will be produced in the size 225/45 R17Y. The sidewall will sport a special design featuring DJ’s logo as well as an equaliser graph.
