    I bought Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 in November 2011r. till the begining of March I made about 17.000 miles. I used Conti TS830 last season and I have to say that they are not so good. I have Kia Ceed Diesel 115BHp. Advantages: durable, low attriction, low noise level, very good driving comfort, good tracktion and braking. Disadvantages: no water-drain groove so there is problem with driving on snow-mud with speeds over 60MPH. Medium aquaplaning resist. Low side grip while cornering and poor braking on wet road surface. Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 is a efficient tyre but for this price I would like to have something better.

    Hello. To be fair I have only had these tyres for a moth and haven't done more than 2k miles. However, I had a chance to test the Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 on the motorway, in the mountains and on the wet. This really is an excellent tyre when it comes to the level of noise (considering this is a Winter tyre) - it is definitely less noisy than some of the Summer tyres. Apart from that, very good handling both on wet and dry surfaces. I haven't had a chance to check their behaviour in snow, but somehow I expect nothing but the best performance. What is more, the rolling resitance is quite low as well.

    I bought a set of Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 three weeks ago. After having them balanced, the guy who fitted them said they doesn't look even to him. And yes, I put the wheels on and it seemed as they were ractangular. The were a little bit better the next day and the place I bought them from said that it will adjust, because of the soft compound. Still by this day when driving around 25mph i can feel a little bouncing. I haven't had a change to use them in snow, but their ok in the mud. I think I might file a complaint, maybe it wasn';t strored properly.

    I had the oportunity to drive with Continentals, Pirellis, Dayton and Dunlops, I had to buy winter tyres to my new Audi A6 and I decided to buy Goodyear Ultra Grip 8. I hear a lot of good things about them and I have to addmint that everything that I heard about this tyres is true. Last night snow felt down and I had opportunity to check them on ice and snow. Ultra Grip 8 are very sensitive and predictable. They do not loose grip suddenly. Moving-off up a iced hill makes no problem for Goodyear Ultra Grip 8. Recommend!

    I have just fitted the Goodyear Ultra Grip 8 and it'a a total nightmare! The car pulls to the sides when above 50mph and up to 25 you can easily hear stange knocking sounds. I had them inspected at a local garage and they say it's definitely the tyre at fault. The car and rims are fine. I will file a complaint. Avoid this model if you can. I will never buy tyres from Goodyear again!
