The presented tyre is marked with 3PMSF symbol (Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake). It means that the tyre meets the EU requirements for winter tyres. The symbol is awarded after thorough tests of a tyre model in terms of snow grip.
Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance is a winter tyre designed for the passenger cars with huge engine power. The tyre’s affinity to the premium class ensures the highest quality and performance.
Directional tread is arranged in the V shape thanks to which the tyre has excellent performance on the wet surface and short braking distance.
In 2012 „Auto Bild” test in the size of 225/40 R18 Goodyear reached the top position.
The tyre is constructed in 3D BIS technology which gives special structure and great thickness of hybrid grooves in the three tread’ zones which ensures appropriate stiffness maintenance and driving on snow as well as high resistance to aquaplaning. Perfect traction on snow is maintained also by the densely cut tread’ fin with the edges arranged in different angles in the central part of the tyre. The producers of this model also took care of the high level of the side tyre’s adherence. For this reason, they introduced the peripheral tread’ grooves of the 6mm depth in the tyre’s construction. The users of this tyre do not have to bother about driving on the icy surface. Special silica compound from which the tyre is constructed performs splendid in such conditions and ensures perfect driving on the ice and snow. This special compound is also the key to the increased course of the tyre, reduced rolling resistance (smaller fuel consumption) and also quiet driving. Moreover, wide grooves arranged on the tread’ barks cause that Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance performs well also on the road covered with slush. This model’s performance on the dry road also remains at the high level. This happens because of the tread’ central fin and densely set hybrid grooves which together magnificently transfer the energy during braking. Therefore, on the one hand, they shorten the braking distance significantly and, on the other, they increase the driving precision during the maneuvers (during the whole tyre’s usage).
