When I first got the tyres they seemed to be a little soft. There was a slight delay on the steering input. Either the tyres have become a little stiffer with use or I don't notice it anymore. The winter has been mild but I did encounter snow falling snow and a light layer of snow driving home one evening. There was no lose of traction and the car was we'll behaved at all times. I have been surprised many times stepping out of the car onto an icy car park and realising how slippery the conditions where. The car only broke grip once on an untreated road. It broke grip on all four wheels but it quickly recovered. Winter tyres don't make you invulnerable but for a rear wheel drive BMW they do provide better traction in winter.
Winter tyres are not summer sport tyres. They cannot take the same amount of power as the summer tyres. I can feel some flex if to much power is applied but you really shouldn't drive near full throttle in winter. However they are much quieter than the summer tyres and provide a more comfortable ride. Anyone who buys these tyres would need to set their expectations according.
It still debatable if you need winters tyres in the UK. However on the winter days when you get stuck and have no traction you will be sorry you do not have them.
I decided to wait a bit before writing my review. I am not a tyre specialist but I must admit that these Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres are great. I have very positive impressions and I would like to recommend these tyres to everybody. I did not expect tchem to be so good. I have never had any problems with moving off uphill in mud and deep snow. Even ABS system did not have to operate in my vehicle. In my old Ford Mondeo I had some Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance and they lasted for seven seasons! The Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres are even better! They are worth their price. I am definitely not disappointed. I do recommend them!
I have felt a significant difference once I exchanged my old Kleber HP2s to these Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres. My driving style is quite aggressive. The tyres provide very good grip in wet weather. I have an impression that they provide better traction in winter than my summer tyres (Continental ContiSportContact5) in dry conditions. My old Klebers cannot be even compared to these tyres. I usually drive on non-urban roads, less frequently in a city or on a highway. I do recommend the Goodyear UG Performance G1. I am very pleased with their quality.
I do agree with all comments about the Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres. They provide an excellent grip. I have done quite a lot of miles on them and I am surprised by their overall performance. They prevent my car from skidding even in the most demanding weather conditions. It feels like my vehicle was sticked to the road. It is an outstanding feeling. Furthermore, I think that their price is quite reasonable.
The Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres provide good traction in winter conditions. Driving is very safe and comfortable both in dry and wet weather conditions. Even in slush they are reliable. Braking is confident. The tyres are very quiet which increases driving comfort. I would like to recommend the Goodyear UG Performance G1 tyres to everybody. These are one of the best tyres I have ever had in my vehicle.

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 UG Performance G1 is a premium-range tyre which has been optimized to give a flawless winter performance on challenging winter roads. As it's a premium tyre it exudes the best build quality and performance for its price. A wide groove system removes excess slush from the tyre, boosting grip safety. A robust and durable tread ensures short braking distances, and a modernized rubber ensures great resilience on winter roads.
Benefits of Goodyear UG Performance G1:
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.
Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.
Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
