The Dutch constructer Vredestein never stops astonishing. Exactly like it did in 1999, when it released its newest tire, the Sportrac, that made the covers of specialized magazines. Indeed, a tire designed by Giorgetto Giugaro, one of the most prolific automobile designers in this industry's history, is in itself a great event. Vredestein Baden B.V., headquartered in Enschede, Holland, begins its story in 1946. Known essentially for their irreproachable grip on snow-covered roads and for their aggressiveness on dry roads, these tires are placed on the fourth position in the European consumers' preferences. Equipping a car with a Vredestein tire, means instantaneously making it more attractive. These tires know how to play the aces in their sleeves. The elegance and the post-modern aesthetics meet up to create tread patterns inspired from the bio-design current, that uses pure forms and fluid contours, to remind the beauty of nature. For Vredestein, every detail is important.
