Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance

The high performance tire for tough snow conditions

The UltraGrip 8 Performance is a high-performance tire built to handle the toughest winter snow conditions.

Designed to deliver superior braking performance on snow, this high performance Winter tyre uses innovative siping technology used in the famous UltraGrip 8. The UltraGrip 8 Performance also has a full silica tread compound and hydrodynamic grooves for better performance in the wet and resistance to aquaplaning.

  • Confident handling on snow
  • Excellent performance on ice
  • High aquaplaning resistance
  • Fuel-efficient design

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.

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.

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

Feature/ Action:

  • Mix of 3 siping technologies
  • Saw shaped rib at centre with variable edge angle
  • Full silica tread compound using the latest mixing technology
  • Directional design with hydrodynamic grooves
  • Cool cushion layer

Benefits:

  • Excellent snow handling performance
  • Enhanced braking and traction on snow
  • Optimum handling and braking on snow and ice
  • Better aquaplaning
  • Good performance on slush
  • Better rolling resistance
 EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes

The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.

Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.

The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.

With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.

Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.

Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.

These are superb winter tyres which perform exceptionally well in snow and ice. I did my research before purchasing them and would highly recommend them.

2 days in a blinding snowstorm proved their worth. Winter motoring at its best, & extra safety to go with it.

I'd buy them again :-)
