Key Benefits

  • Confident handling on snow

    Confident handling on snow

    Travel with confidence on snow-covered roads. The UltraGrip 8 Performance provides superior grip and braking on hard-packed snow, thanks to the integration of three different types of sipes. The saw-shaped central rib works like a snowplow, grabbing onto surface snow for extra traction.

  • Excellent performance on ice

    Excellent performance on ice

    The UltraGrip 8 Performance features a large contact patch that improves handling on ice. The silica tread compound maintains good grip at low temperatures.

  • Reduced risk of aquaplaning

    Reduced risk of aquaplaning

    Special hydrodynamic tread grooves quickly channel water away from the tyre surface, helping you keep control on wet or slushy roads.

  • Fuel-efficient design

    Fuel efficient design

    The tyre’s low-weight construction reduces rolling resistance, lowering your vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
