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.

    despite having the Xl version the tyre walls are typically soft which is a Goodyear trait. You often think you have a puncture. Smooth and quiet but scary on dry corners if you drive at summer tyre speeds

    I bought a set of tires about 2 months ago. The price was higher than today, but I do not regret any dollar you spend on these tires. He instructed them to me not at all familiar employee of a vulcanization in Tri ... And so it began ... I bought the car in October, for which the owner is not added, winter tires (because they were not "worthy" of this car :)), a couple of days later, after converting the probably "all over the internet," I went to a vulcanization, because I wanted to learn a bit about their tires found, and they were bland Nokia WR something sensational fall out there and ADAC tests Conti Winter Contact Continentale or something like that. I entered nothing aware of the company asked for the above-mentioned models of tires, as an employee of that vulcanization just laughed at me, asking if this is to be the tire for me or for the mother in law? Originally I did not understand this employee's laughter, because how it is as Continental and Nokian ridiculed? After a volley of laughter employee told me what subject Goodyear, however, the price of the plant was overwhelming, but from what we have internet and Price tires on the website of the plant was already about 90 PLN / pc lower than I would have ordered a worker physically. However, I decided to purchase the - it was not the first purchase on this website ... Auto can deal on these tires, in principle, all terrain, I live outside the city (mud, snow - go without a problem), in commuting to work - it runs. I consider buying hit the nail on the head like the choice of a wife;). Undecided recommend 100%. As I wrote above: I do not regret any dollar you spend on these tires. Yours

    At the beginning I will say that given the scale of the driving style to choose is not about I drive fast but not aggressively. And that choice is not there. I BELIEVE THAT THE TIRE THAT HAS xl INDEX SHOULD BE FIXED. Vulcanizer, who was a salesman these tires assured me that this is a tire with performance tires reinforced XL. Unfortunately, the tire is soft and the effect of this was that after being caught, slipper ", despite the fact that I immediately sensed this and stopped it turned out that the tire is destroyed from the inside edge of the rim (from the outside you could not see any damage. EFFECT final- another 630 zł in the mud. believe that the tires in the premium class are too expensive and do not have good relation quality - price. After the winter, so I bought a summer tire.,, Other Brands "and I say briefly ... I'm positively shocked by the quality for the price. drove already 9 thousand kilometers and shows no signs of tire wear and for set size 215/55/17 I paid half as much as the previous tires. skated dry quickly after a heavy rain and cornering. tires behave sensational, look great and good hold. And their name is OVATION. And I know, I know ...... that Chinese tire but I assure you that by the time the purchase of these tires always driven on tires in the class of so-called premium paying per set between 2500 - 3000 zł. And here is set for 940 zł .... gorgeous. I would definitely recommend.

    Appreciate the tires very well because they made me absolutely no trouble during winter. Objectively minion winter was not too demanding for the car, so I had no way of checking the tires in really difficult situations. I made only two longer distances (several hundred-kilometer), but in bezśnieżnych conditions. In this weather tires from other low-end also to quietly coped, but I ride with my family and me count the highest quality parameters. I'm with those who prefer to overpay, but to have peace of mind that they have done everything they could not to tempt fate. This winter I remember only a few days of very poor road conditions, and if these days tires worked as it should and have saved me from a possible road event, it was worth it!
