I'm glad to see Vredestein Quatrac 5 tires are now easier to buy in the US.

Vredestein

Those have a really nice tread pattern for all-season.

Looks good for winter except real deep snow.

They are mountain/snowflake rated.
One other nugget is they are polyamide cap ply so they should experience less flat-spotting vs nylon cap ply?

Quote:

The Quatrac 5 is Vredestein's Grand Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, station wagons and crossover vehicles looking for confident performance in the dry and wet, plus premium light snow traction. The Quatrac 5 meets the industry's severe snow service requirements and is designed to be a one-tire solution for drivers in environments that experience all four seasons, but don't receive sufficient snowfall to require a dedicated winter tire.

The Quatrac 5 features a high-silica tread compound molded into a multiple condition-focused, asymmetric pattern. The outboard shoulder and first rib are designed for traction, handling and steering precision in dry and wet conditions, with low void ratio and large, stiff tread blocks. The inboard rib and inside shoulder are tuned for confident performance in wet and wintry conditions, with wide, circumferential grooves and lateral notches to evacuate water and slush from the contact patch, along with high-density, winter-focused zigzag sipes that help deliver the traction needed to receive the three-peak mountain snowflake symbol (3PMSF).

Internal construction of the Quatrac 5 consists of a single-ply polyester casing supporting two steel belts. A polyamide reinforcement aids in handling performance and provides high-speed durability.

Had this brand tires on a 1980 Honda Accord hatch with a 5 speed fabulous in the the winter. They weren't dedicated snow tires.
