Ranked #4 of 9
Securing the fourth spot among nine competitors, the Vredestein Ultrac proved itself as a competent all-rounder in its performance evaluation. Though it didn't reach the top marks in any specific category, it was commended for its solid grip level, comfortable driving experience, and high energy efficiency. However, its longer braking distance on wet surfaces was noted as a drawback. On dry surfaces, the tire's low rolling resistance coefficient highlights its fuel-saving potential, but it was the slowest in the slalom segment. Despite this, it was praised for its good cornering grip and straightforward handling, with a gentle understeer that signals well in advance, enabling easy control adjustments by the driver. The clear feedback on wet surfaces demands precise input from the driver, rewarding with considerable grip levels, although the long braking distance on wet conditions was a pointed concern.

Ranked #7 of 10
Finishing 7th out of 10 competitors, the Vredestein ULTRAC tyre received a final rating of 'Satisfactory'. It was praised for its brand-quality sidewall stability and secure driving characteristics, alongside good aquaplaning resistance and pleasantly quiet rolling comfort, all available at a moderate price level. However, its performance was slightly marred by a tendency to understeer on both wet and dry surfaces, increased rolling resistance, and marginally extended braking distances. No specific disciplines were highlighted as its strongest or weakest points, underlining its overall satisfactory but mixed performance.

Ranked #20 of 20
The Vredestein ULTRAC finished the competition in 20th place out of 20 participants, receiving a final rating of "Conditionally recommended". Despite its position, the tyre was praised for its excellent driving dynamics, short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces, and very good resistance to aquaplaning. Its superior performance was particularly noted in disciplines such as aquaplaning (both cross and longitudinal), dry handling, wet circle cornering, and wet handling. However, the tyre was also criticized for its low mileage and increased rolling resistance, factors that affected its overall ranking.

very good
Ranked #3 of 8
Securing a commendable third place among eight contenders, the Vredestein ULTRAC tire demonstrated an impressive performance, ultimately earning a final rating of "Very Good". This tire stood out particularly for its exceptional grip and easy manageability on wet surfaces, ensuring reliability during heavy rain and showcasing superior safety against aquaplaning. On dry asphalt, it offered benign handling characteristics, contributing to a confident driving experience. Despite these strengths, certain limitations were noted, including sensitivity to load changes and a tendency for a slightly unstable rear during rapid lane changes, alongside minor compromises in ride comfort due to some roughness. Notably, this tire excelled in aquaplaning resistance in longitudinal tests, outperforming its competitors in this specific discipline and reinforcing its status as a dependable choice for rainy conditions.

sufficient
Ranked #16 of 16
In a comprehensive evaluation among 16 competitors, the Vredestein Ultrac was ranked last but received a final rating of 'Sufficient'. This tire was acknowledged for its secure performance on both dry and wet roads, a standout feature being its excellent aquaplaning resistance in the cross direction, where it performed best. Moreover, it was praised for its light weight and low fuel consumption, highlighting its efficiency. However, there were significant concerns regarding its predicted mileage and excessive wear, which ultimately affected its standing in the assessment. Despite these drawbacks, the Vredestein Ultrac was credited for safe driving characteristics, offering good steering feedback and stable handling on dry surfaces, and solid braking performance alongside aquaplaning capabilities on wet roads. Unfortunately, its shortfall in mileage and higher wear levels led to a lower overall environmental rating, despite its commendable fuel efficiency.

satisfactory
Ranked #14 of 21
Securing a commendable 4th position among 21 competitors, the Vredestein Ultrac demonstrated impressive performance in a recent evaluation. It was particularly noted for its convincing safety margins in aquaplaning scenarios, showcasing a sporty and dynamic driving behavior along with short braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces. However, the tyre was marked down for its considerably limited mileage longevity. An exceptional aspect of the tyre's performance was its outstanding capability in wet braking, where it truly excelled compared to its peers. This balance of proficient handling in critical conditions and a notable drawback in wear resistance creates a mixed yet largely favorable view of the Vredestein Ultrac's overall capabilities.
