Product description

UltraGrip 8

The winter tyre that delivers outstanding snow traction

  • Shorter braking distances on snow
  • Extra grip on winter roads
  • Improved handling
  • High aquaplaning resistance

Why choose this tyre

Improved handling

Goodyear’s 3D BIS Technology® improves handling in unpredictable winter weather – from wet and dry roads, to ice, snow and slush. The optimized tyre shape puts more rubber in contact with the road, increasing control in slippery conditions. The UltraGrip 8 maintains handling performance even as the tire wears, thanks to a next generation V-tread design.

Shorter braking distances on snow

Benefit from shorter braking distances when it matters most, thanks to Goodyear’s 3D-BIS Technology®. This interlocking block system helps deliver braking distances on snow that are one meter shorter than the average performance of competitors’ winter tyres. * UltraGrip 8 delivered 3% shorter braking distances when compared to the average performance of two leading competitors. Braking distances on snow from 50km/h to 5km/h tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in December 2010; tire size: 205/55R16 91H; test car: VW Golf VI; location: Ivalo, Finland.

High aquaplaning resistance

The UltraGrip 8 reduces the risk of aquaplaning on slushy or wet roads. A double V-groove – one groove for evacuating water and one for gripping snow – ensures good control in wet and thawing conditions. When tested against competitors' tires, the UltraGrip 8 offered 16% better resistance to aquaplaning on curved roads. ** Compared to the average performance of two leading competitors. Tested by TÜV SÜD Automotive in December 2010; tire size: 205/55R16 91H; test car: VW Golf VI; location: Ivalo, Finland and Montpelier Ice Rink, Mireval, France.

Extra grip on winter roads

Enjoy confident grip in all cold-weather conditions. The winter tread compound maintains high grip levels at temperatures below 7 °C. The compound is long-wearing to give you extra mileage from your winter tyres.

EU Tyre Label Description

Goodyear UltraGrip 8 205/55R16 91T
E C 70dB C1

In November 2012 a standard label for vehicle tyres was introduced in the EU. Based on three criteria it gives information about fuel efficiency, wet grip rating and noise levels.

 

Fuel efficiency  - This label shows you how a tyre performs on fuel consumption - fuel efficiency is graded from A to G (rating D is not used for passenger cars). The difference between an A rating and a G rating could mean a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 7.5%. To put this in real terms, choosing A-rated tyres instead of G-rated tyres could save you more than 6 litres of fuel every 1,000 kilometres (based on an average consumption of 8 litres/100km)

  Wet grip - This label shows how well a tyre brakes in wet conditions. Graded from A to G (ratings D and G are not used for passenger cars). In an emergency situation, a few metres can make all the difference. For a passenger car applying full brakes from 50mph, a set of A-rated tyres will brake up to 18 metres shorter than a set of F-rated tyres (braking distances may vary according to driving conditions and other influencing factors)

 

Noise - This label shows you the noise level in decibels of a tyre. The tyre is categorised in 3 classes illustrated by 3 waves: 1 black wave - Quiet (3dB or more below the European limit), 2 black waves - Moderate (between the European limit and 3dB below) and 3 black waves - Noisy (above the European limit)
