The Goodyear Ultragrip 8 Performance is a premium tyre that can handle even the toughest of winter conditions. This high performance tyre has already been recommended by a number of respected trade magazines and put through its paces by ADAC, who were particularly impressed with its outstanding level of traction on snowy ground. Likewise, its wet and dry road performances gave them little to complain about, while the tyre's low fuel consumption provided a further positive talking point: This great source of savings for motorists is attributable to the tyre's lightweight design.
It's little wonder that German publication "Autobild" declared the Ultragrip 8 Performance a "top class winter tyre" following its tests of the product in size 225/40 R18 92V: the tyre has three different kinds of sipes, ensuring plenty of grip and short braking distances on ice and snow. Traction is enhanced via the saw-shaped middle rib, while hydrodynamic tread grooves divert water effectively in the case of rain and slush. The result is a "very high traction limit and good driving behaviour in wet conditions", as specialist publication "Sportauto" wrote of the tyre in 2012. Order a set for yourself and see how good it really is!
