Why choose this tyre

Fuel efficient design

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

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Confidence inspiring I purchased my Goodyear tyres in 2014 and ran them on my BMW 3 series through the winter months into 2015. They always provided me with confidence - what ever the weather. Next month I'll fit the tyres again and drive into 2016 with a smile on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tyres I purchased these tyres for a skiing trip to France. By chance we encountered terrible snow and blizzard conditions that bought most traffic to a standstill all the way from the Eurostar. Not us - the traction on these tyres were amazing and we drove hundreds of miles without the slightest slip - even managing to get all the way up to our resort without putting on the snow chains - unbelievable!
