Vredestein Winter vs Summer

As we have reported before, Vredestein has an exceptional line of tires that are now (finally) available in South Africa. Not only are they beautifully designed, but, as their slogan reads, they are also ‘designed to protect you’.

This is why they have developed tyres for any weather condition. Whether it’s summer or winter – they have a set perfect for you and the conditions you will have to face seasonally.

Temperature, rain, wind and speed are all factors that come into play when driving. Thus, it should be obvious that one would need different tyres for the different seasons, because the conditions are sometimes almost extremes.

Check ou this video below to see exactly how Vredestein’s winter tires compare to their summer one’s – and then you can go and get yourself a summer set, while we are still in spring!
