The Victra Sport 5 was runner-up to the Michelin tyre only in dry handling. Read more about the Victra Sport 5 tyre test results.

    Evo magazine tyre test logoEvo Tyre Test 2019
    “[The Victra Sport 5] would have beaten the Pirelli to the top spot. Like the Pirelli, it has great feel and performs very well in the wet and the dry, and it also happens to be the least expensive tyre here.” – Evo magazine, September 2019

    The official winner of the test, the Pirelli P Zero, achieved a total rating of 97.9%. Our Victra Sport 5 was rated 99.1%.

    User Reviews

    Sometimes the best tyre reviews come from drivers just like you. Take a look at our user reviews below.

    Audi S3 driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, December 2020:

    “Audi s3. These tyres were amazing in the rain. Fast corners, progressive break away, excellent braking. Very high confidence in wet conditions. They need to be properly inflated. OEM requires 39 psi front. Dry cornering is also excellent. Surprisingly rides softer/smoother than the Continentals on before. Not as sticky however when launching. In summary, fantastic road/track tire. Not ideal for drag strip use. Will buy again for sure.”

    BMW 335d driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, June 2020:

    “I’m very surprised from this tyres. I was a little bit skeptical about them, but very impressed. My previous tyres were Bridgestone S001 and I can say that Maxxis VS5 are better. For me these tyes are upper mid-level tires, especially taking into consideration the price.”

    Seat Leon Cupra R driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, April 2020:

    “Great tyres for the money. Way better than PS4 although take some scrubbing in which to me means they will be a better more grippy tyre in the long run. Had PS4 previously and the sidewalls perished very quickly and were not as grippy. Converted 4 friends to these tyres by taking them out in my car, with PS4 prior and now the VS5. Great tyre will buy again and again.” 

    Audi A6 TDI Quattro driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, February 2020:

    “The Maxxis tyres ‘drive’ well, no longer ‘following’ the poor road surfaces and have great adhesion in the wet as long as you don’t allow the ‘big second turbo’ to take over. Most impressed. 8mm of tread as well, certainly as good as the Pirellis fitted as standard. Jolly good price as well compared to the over-priced popular tyres. Will I use Maxxis again? Yes I will. Most impressed with them.” 

    BMW 330d M Sport driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, February 2020:

    “Regardless of price these are a great tyre. Transfer excessive torque really well. Traction light is hardly on. Very impressed.” 

    Ford Focus RS driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, December 2019

    “This tyre is impressive and surprisingly much better than my expectation, quick steering response and grippy on all condition, I would take this tyre next time.” 

    Volkswagen Golf R driver, TyreReviews.co.uk, July 2019:

    “Huge improvement over my Bridgestone Potenza RE003’s. Comfort and noise is the largest improvement, but nothing has been sacrificed in terms of handling, dry, or wet grip. Very progressive at the edge of traction as well although I really have struggled to push it there with the amount of grip these have along with the 4wd on the Golf R. Can’t forget to mention that it really does look great too. Hugely impressed with what Maxxis have done here.”
