- EU Tyre Label:
The test-winning winter tyre for high performance vehicles
- Secure grip on slippery winter roads
- Good handling on wet and dry
- High aquaplaning resistance
- Quiet, comfortable ride
Quiet, comfortable ride. Experience quieter journeys with a block sequence arrangement that keeps tyre noise to a minimum.
Secure grip on slippery winter roads. The UltraGrip Extreme excels in all winter conditions, with a tread compound that maintains grip in extremely cold weather. Enjoy easier acceleration and hill-climbing thanks to circumferential saw grooves in the tread. Adaptive SipeGrip Technology enhances grip and braking ability on hard-packed snow and ice.
Good handling on wet and dry. Designed for high performance driving, the UltraGrip Performance 2 maintains optimal stiffness to give you confident wet and dry handling. The centre line provides continuous contact with the road surface, leading to more precise steering in dry conditions.
Reduced risk of aquaplaning. V-shaped tread grooves quickly channel water away from the tyre surface, helping you keep control on wet or slushy roads.
The Winter tyre for high performance cars. Offers secure grip on slippery roads, high aquaplaning resistance and good handling on wet and dry roads. Winter tyres Very flexibile Zig-Zag lamellas in the middle which gives an 'Extra Portion' Grip on snow and ice. The advantage of the new tires Goodyear Performance is a better shot at the snow and ice thanks to new lamellas construction. This mutually locked three-dimensional blocks already used in the tyre allowed to increase the number of slats in the tread parts. Tires Goodyear UltraGrip Performance on the wet surface and snow better adhesion to the ground by the last generation tread mixture with a high content of silica. This special mixture remains flexible even at very low temperatures.
Adaptive SipeGrip Technology: 2 different types of sipes for 2 different purposes, always perfectly aligned with footprint leading edge.
- Hydrodynamic V groove + intermediate circumferential grooves
- Optimised polymer blend and advanced silica technology
- 2D zig zag sipes in the centre for excellent decoupling effect
- 3D waffle sipes in shoulders and intermediate zone for stiffness
- Optimum water dispersal/ evacuation
- Flexibility at low temperatures and higher interaction on wet and icy surfaces
- Extra grip under slippery conditions like snow, ice and wet
- Improved dry and wet handling performance as well as dry braking
- Aquaplaning + slush planing resistance
- Increased grip on all kind of surfaces (snow, ice, wet) at low temperature
Silent TUV Claims TÜV SÜD Automotive test results on snow, ice and wet* The UltraGrip Performance 2, which has been independently tested by the German Testing and Certification Company TÜV SÜD Automotive contributes to a highly sophisticated driving performance in all win.
Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
