    Vredestein Quatrac 5 All Season

    Anyone ever use these for their Abarth 500? Thoughts? Just ordered and will be here on Sept 4th. They will be replacing the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Seasons...

    I’m guessing that they’ll be on par with the P7s, maybe better in the wet if they used a gripper compound. Let us know!

    Not sure, if your running 16 or 17 tires... My Nephew and I bought these Michelin pilot sport A/S. For both our cars. Kind of pricey Great tire warranty. Lots of tire outlets for replacement. Better then the Continentals and Pirellis
    Good Luck on your tire choice.

    It's Netherlands, but bought by Apollo Tires of India.

    It's rated as well as the Pilot Sport 3+, but about $160 less. They are being closed out by TireRack, so I wonder if there will be a new model, or if that size is being eliminated.

    I look forward to hearing how they do on your 500.

    They will probably be fine for the money. Most of these cheap tires can easily match the performance of the bettee all seasons. Some of them just get really loud quickly, despite care. My second abarth I got not too long ago had some zenna tire on it. I looked them up online. $180 a set shipped on ebay!!! They have the grip youd about expect from an average all season. Squeal in corners instead of howl. Just like an all season. I'm sure the nicer Michelins, and highly rated all season tires have more ultimate grip, better wear and life and all that. but the tires that came on the car have been well used and still are quiet and smooth. If your more worried about all season type qualities than performance, they really make a lot of sense at that price.

    Just checked, zenna argus. Like I said, 180 a set. That's pretty amazing what u can get these days.

    I think they'll be OK, reviews on Tire Rack are ok (as are most!), and the brand advertises in some of the car magazines, so it's not like they're unknown. $112 or so each on TireRack in the 17 inch size, $89 for 16 inch. https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...5QT5&tab=Sizes

    My coworker has Vredesteins on his 500. He is happy with them. The seem to be alright tires.
    They are, however, a different model than you have posted.
