UltraGrip 8
EFuel efficiency
Fuel efficiency is a measure of the tyre's rolling resistance. A tyre with low rolling resistance is more fuel efficient since it requires less energy to roll.
EWet Grip
Wet grip is a measure of tyre's braking ability on wet roads.
70 dBExternal noise
The external noise generated by the tyre, measured in decibels. The black sound waves indicate the noise class, from 1 (quiet) to 3 (noisy).

Why choose this tyre

Improved handling

Goodyear’s 3D BIS Technology® improves handling in unpredictable winter weather – from wet and dry roads, to ice, snow and slush. The optimized tyre shape puts more rubber in contact with the road, increasing control in slippery conditions. The UltraGrip 8 maintains handling performance even as the tyre wears, thanks to a next generation V-tread design.

Shorter braking distances on snow

Benefit from shorter braking distances when it matters most, thanks to Goodyear’s 3D-BIS Technology®. This interlocking block system helps deliver braking distances on snow that are one meter shorter than the average performance of competitors’ winter tyres. * UltraGrip 8 delivered 3% shorter braking distances when compared to the average performance of two leading competitors. Braking distances on snow from 50km/h to 5km/h tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in December 2010; tyre size: 205/55R16 91H; test car: VW Golf VI; location: Ivalo, Finland; report # 76244609

High aquaplaning resistance

The UltraGrip 8 reduces the risk of aquaplaning on slushy or wet roads. A double V-groove – one groove for evacuating water and one for gripping snow – ensures good control in wet and thawing conditions. When tested against competitors' tyres, the UltraGrip 8 offered 16% better resistance to aquaplaning on curved roads. ** Compared to the average performance of two leading competitors. Tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in December 2010; tyre size: 205/55R16 91H; test car: VW Golf VI; location: Ivalo, Finland and Montpelier Ice Rink, Mireval, France; report # 76244609

Extra grip on winter roads

Enjoy confident grip in all cold-weather conditions. The winter tread compound maintains high grip levels at temperatures below 7 °C. The compound is long-wearing to give you extra mileage from your winter tyres.
