The Ultrac Sessanta is one of Vredestein’s aces in the Ultra High Performance (UHP) segment. The Sessanta is based on the strong points of the Ultrac series and has been optimised even further to give very good steering and handling characteristics. Giugiaro Design has given the Ultrac Sessanta a revolutionary design, with a line pattern that clearly shows that performance comes first.

The name Sessanta refers to sixty years of Vredestein’s existence in Enschede. In tribute to Vredestein’s unique collaborative partnership with Giugiaro Design, “sixty” is written in Italian: Sessanta.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.

Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.

Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.

Only on front two tyres.Rear are existing tyres. Gripped exceptionally well in the summer. Seems to be less traction in icy conditions. The additional thickness of the tyre wall provides great protection for alloys when parking up against kerbs!

This tyre is all about sport design they looks brilliant. Tyres are very good in vet and dry condition hard to turn on traction control so they not loosing touch with road. Noise level is ok the same like my old Pirelli. Fuel consumption is maybe bit higher.Vredestein is Netherlands company and this tyre are made in Netherlands not like some big brands tyre you can think they are Germany but on tyre is made in ... I'm Happy with this Tyre
