The Vredestein Wintrac finished the competition in the 10th position among its peers, securing a final rating of 'Satisfactory'. Despite achieving the highest marks for its performance on ice, distinguishing itself as the best in ice braking, and contributing to lower fuel consumption, it displayed notable drawbacks. These shortcomings included a relatively high wear rate and weaknesses when driving on dry surfaces, which ultimately impacted its overall evaluation. Additionally, while its capabilities in wet conditions and on snow were commendable, these strengths were not enough to elevate it beyond a satisfactory overall standing among recommended tires. The tire also stood out for its dry braking performance, further showcasing its mixed results across different testing disciplines.

Ranked #5 of 6
The Vredestein Wintrac finished 5th among 6 competitors, marking its first appearance in competitive analysis since its launch as a replacement for the Snowtrac. Designed to offer all-round performance, it stood out most notably in wet and dry conditions. However, the tyre faced challenges in deep-water aquaplaning tests, where it was at the bottom alongside Michelin, and was the slowest on the handling track, trailing by over a second from the fastest. Its performance on the handling track was hampered by its front end, requiring additional throttle wait time and steering lock to navigate through turns effectively. Despite these hurdles, the Wintrac showcased impressive braking capabilities, securing second place in wet braking, narrowly missing the top spot held by Bridgestone, and excelling in dry braking where it took the lead by almost a meter. This achieved proficiency in braking, however, did not extend to snow conditions, where it ranked last in all tests conducted at the Arctic Center, evidenced by lower grip levels, though it managed to maintain a decent balance.

Ranked #6 of 16
The Vredestein Wintrac finished in a commendable 6th place out of 16 competitors, earning a final rating of 'Satisfactory'. Excelling on both dry and wet roads as well as in wear performance, the tyre proved its worth in challenging conditions. However, it did not perform as well on snowy surfaces, a factor that led to a slight downgrade in its overall assessment. Despite this, the Vredestein Wintrac's strengths in other key areas underscore its reliability and effectiveness as a winter tyre, although it showed some limitations in snow handling.
