Product description & features
Goodyear has engineered the UltraGrip 8 Performance to give drivers the confidence to drive in winter conditions, delivering optimum grip and braking on snow and ice covered roads.
The unique tread pattern features a ‘saw-shaped’ central rib constructed to grasp onto the snow in order to provide extra traction when driving. The UltraGrip 8 Performance also contains hydrodynamic tread grooves that have been designed to push water away from the tyre swiftly -this improves the control of the tyre while also reducing the risk of aquaplaning.
The UltraGrip 8 Performance also reduces your fuel consumption and CO2 emissions due to the light-weight of the tyre reducing rolling resistance.
What is an All Season tyre?
Designed to cope with all sorts of conditions - good performance delivered throughout the year. Moderate natural rubber content to stop the tyre hardening in temperatures below 0 degrees Celsius – enhancing grip. Designed with moderate tread depths that have been engineered to help deliver a longer tread life than many summer tyres
How can I tell an All Season tyre performs in winter weather?
This tyre features the EU sanctioned 3PMSF marking - Three Peak Mountain Snow Flake: This accolade was introduced to be an easily recognisable symbol which displays that the tyre has passed rigourous tests to prove it is suitable for driving in winter weather. It confirms the winter suitability of a tyre.
Are All Season tyres suitable for the UK?
Given that the UK suffers from moderate and interchangeable winter conditions - with severe ice and snow becoming uncommon for much of the country - this makes all season tyres a very good choice for our roads. As they are able to cope with these conditions very well.
Do I need to swap my tyres throughout the year?
Given the nature of all season tyres, which can perform equally well in the summer months and the winter months, the need to replace tyres depending on the seasons is not required when all season tyres are fitted.
