Why choose this tyre

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

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

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

Fuel efficient design

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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb tyre This is my second winter with the set of tyres and I cannot believe just how good they are in every respect. They recently did a 2000 mile round trip to the Alps and were tested in all conditions- they are exemplary!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Brilliant ***** Having changed job to working for a Danish company based for a while in Denmark I saw first hand the benefits of using winter tyres. When came back to the UK I investigated getting winter tyres for both my Fabia and my wife's Yeti. From an interview review search got a good feeling for the Goodyear and on one pay cheque purchased two for the front wheels of my Fabia whilst still running the summer tyres on the rear. The following day whilst driving down the M6 in a storm I saw some severe standing water so did the normal preparation of tensing for it. Wow, the tyres went through without so much as a twitch. The following pay cheque bought a set for the rear and transformed the car for winter driving. In really wet condition the car feels like it is on rails. My local tyre company (Stafford Tyres) take them off at the start of April and put on my summer tyres again. If I didn't to the mileage that I do I'd leave them on all year. Then...... I fitted my wife's Yeti with a full set. For a car that handles and grips amazingly anyway I was still not prepared for the improvement a set of Goodyear Ultragrip winter tyres would make. In cold and wet conditions it drives like it is the height of summer on slicks. My wife is really down on me when in April I get them taken off and the summer tyres put back on.
