The Ultrac Vorti is an Ultra High Performance tyre in the absolute top segment of the market. The tyre was developed in close collaboration with the Italian design company Giugiaro, and its slimline design and asymmetric profile give this tyre an extremely sporty and unique appearance. The tyre excels in terms of grip, handling, comfort and braking behaviour on both dry and wet road surfaces. By making use of innovative technologies, the tyre is also surprisingly quiet.

The Ultrac Vorti is also available in rear axle sizes with an adapted profile and specially-tailored structure, especially for sports cars that have different tyre sizes on the front and rear axle. Due to the fact that it is the front tyres that dissipate the majority of the water when the road surface is wet, the focus for the rear tyres was on increased grip and stability.

The European Tyre Label

Introduction
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.

Benefits
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.

Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.

We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.

Symbols
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise

Take action
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.

Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

Fuel Efficiency

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.

Rolling Resistance
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.

Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.

Wet grip

It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres. Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.

The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.

Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.

Tyre Noise

The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.

A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.

Symbol
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.

Excellent tyre all round. I previously only purchased Continental whichare excellent also but the Vreds is as good if not better. Its marginal but the Vreds are cheaper and therefore my preference.

14.05.2014 from Nickb
So much better than the previous original tyres on this car. Bought these after reading reviews on here and they were right. Better tyre and cheaper

Good replacement for Bridgestone Potenza.

04.03.2014 from Martin
Big difference over the Bridgestone Potenza original fitment tyres, very quiet and loads of grip, a very attractive looking tyre too, I've noticed a slight advantage in fuel consumption as well, all in all very pleased with the performance and price.
