Goodyear UG 8 Performance features

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).

Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance is the winter tyre designed for the passenger cars. It’s the premium class tyre which ensures the highest quality.

    I bought a set of tires about 2 months ago. The price was higher than now, but I don't regret spending more on these tires. They were recommended to me by an unfamiliar worker of a certain vulcanization in the Tri-City ... And it started like this ... I bought a car in October, to which the owner did not add winter tires (because they were not "worthy" of this car :)), a few days Later, after browsing probably "the whole internet", I went to a certain vulcanization, because I wanted to know a bit about the tires I found, and they were a certain Nokia WR something out there and it was amazing in the ADAC Continental Conti Winter Contact tests or something like that. I entered the plant, unaware of anything, and asked about the aforementioned tire models, for which the employee of this vulcanization simply laughed at me, asking if these were to be tires for me or for my mother-in-law? Initially, I did not understand the laughter of that employee, because how is it that Continental and Nokian are laughed at? After a laugh, the employee recommended the Goodyear tires in question to me, but the price in their plant was overwhelming, but what do we have internet and Oponeo for? The price of tires on the plant's website was already lower than I would physically order from an employee. However, I decided to buy at oponeo - it was not the first purchase on this site ... The car can handle these tires in virtually any terrain, I live outside the city (mud, snow - I drive without any problems), in the city I commute to work - also without any problems. I consider the purchase to be right on target, as was the choice of my wife;). I recommend 100% to the undecided. As I wrote above: I do not regret any money spent on these tires. best regards

    At the beginning I will say that the scale of the driving style to choose from is not ok. I drive fast but not aggressive. And there is no such choice. I CONSIDER THAT A TIRE WITH INDEX XL SHOULD BE STIFF. The vulcanizer who sold these tires assured me that it was a tire with the parameters of a reinforced XL tire. Unfortunately, the tire is soft and the effect of this was that after catching the "slipper", despite the fact that I immediately felt it and stopped, it turned out that the tire from the inside was damaged by the rim edge (no damage was visible from the outside. FINAL EFFECT- Another PLN 630 down the drain I believe that Premium tires are too expensive and do not have a good quality-price ratio. After the winter, I bought summer tires, the so-called "Other brands" and I will say briefly ... I am positively shocked by the quality for the price. I have already traveled 9 thousand kilometers and the tire has no signs of wear and for a set in size 215/55/17 I paid as much as for the previous one and a half tire. dry after heavy rain and after bends. The tires behave great, look great and hold well. And their name is OVATION. And I know, I know ...... it's a Chinese tire, but I assure you that until I bought these tires I always used tires in the so-called Premium class, paying for a set between PLN 2500 - 3000. And here a set for PLN 940 .... divine. I definitely recommend it.

    Bought for a company car. Generally 90% of my trips are routes. First of all, the tires improved the driving comfort (quite soft, nice balloon on the sides, protecting the rim). Secondly, my fuel consumption dropped by about 0.7 l / 100 km with the same driving style. Overall a very successful purchase. I did about 20,000 in winter. km so I can recommend :). Tire wear is practically invisible but I have not measured it. The noise level is a big plus - there is really nothing to complain about. They were also tested in Špindlerův Mlýn in the middle of winter. Without chains and without any problems (drive only to the front), I was climbing steep hills (packed snow on the street). With a clear conscience, I can recommend it to people who hesitate. You will not be disappointed.

    I rate these tires very positively because they gave me absolutely no problems during the winter. Objectively, last winter was not too demanding for the car, so I was not able to check the tires in really difficult situations. I did only two longer routes (several hundred kilometers), but in snow-free conditions. In such weather, other low-end tires would also cope well, but I drive with my family and the highest quality parameters count for me. I am one of those who prefer to overpay, but have peace of mind that they did everything they could not to tempt fate. I only remember a few days this winter with very bad road conditions and if the tires worked as expected and saved me from a possible traffic accident, it was worth it!

    I bought these tires this year and there was almost no winter, but those few days of snow in the city showed that it was a good choice. Traction control never needed to activate, the tires are very quiet, quieter than the summer Michelin which I drive now. Very nice looking for my eyes. The price is considerable, but it is a reasonable compromise. I use it too short to be able to say something about failure or abrasion. If Oponeo offers an attractive price, I will buy the same tires for the second car before the winter.
