Goodyear Ultra Grip 9

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.

Information on the tyre:

This model is the successor of a tyre which rated highly by drivers and scored high in tests Goodyear UltraGrip 8.

Its greatest asset is its short braking distance, something which has been proven in tests conducted by the prestigious TÜV organisation. These tests revealed that compared to its biggest three competitors, the tyre ensures a 4% shorter braking distance on snow. Apart from that, the tyre has many other advantages.

Besides proving their short braking distance, TÜV tests have also shown that the tyre performs considerably better than its predecessor, the Goodyear UltraGrip 8.

Its entirely new directional tread pattern performs excellently in typical winter conditions, especially on snow.

This type of performance is determined by elements of the tread like its large number of edges, sipes and tread blocks with a variable geometry. Goodyear UltraGrip 9 is made of a rubber compound enriched by special resins and vegetable oils. Such a solution ensures grip on any winter road. When driving with these tyres you can also feel confident on slush, as the thick grooves located on the tyre’s surface are responsible for its quick drainage from the tyre.

Goodyear UltraGrip 9 performs similarly in rainy conditions. The short braking distance on wet surfaces is facilitated by the modern shoulder blocks.

Driving on wet and snowy roads is supported by the deep sipes.

By investing in Goodyear UltraGrip 9, you can also expect a lower rolling resistance (more fuel savings) and exceptionally high driving comfort. This is all thanks to the tyre’s structure, specially optimised to achieve the above.

The tyre is equipped with a tread wear indicator (in the shape of a snowflake) which allows you establish the tyre’s wear easily.

Note! Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 is equipped with two types of directional tread (with or without the central groove).

Goodyear is an American tyre manufacturing group recognised the world over. Their excellent market position today would have been impossible without the efforts of Frank Sieberling, dating back to 1898. The company founder borrowed some money from his brother-in-law to establish the Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company plant. The Goodyear Group keeps developing and it’s all thanks to the research laboratory founded in 1943, which regularly provides the company with new ideas.

    I would like to share my opinion about the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres. I decided to purchase them after reading some reviews. So far they are the best winter tyres I have ever had (my previous tyres were Michelins EnergySaver model). I do not regret my decision. I have done more than 6000 miles on them and they still look like new. The tyres are really quiet. They are unusually comfortable as for winter tyres. They are doing very good in snow and slush. They look good on a car. They could be a bit better in dry weather. Braking distance on a wet surface is very good but if you start quickly, they sometimes squeal. When it comes to their wear I cannot tell much because I would have to drive more on them. As for now there are no signs of wear. I would buy the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 again. The rubber compound is quite soft. In my previous car (Ford Focus II, 2007) I had Continental WinterContact tyres and they were not as good as the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9. I would definitely buy these Goodyears again.

    I had a set of Barum Polaris 2 budget winter tyres previously mounted on my vehicle. They were OK but after five seasons the rubber compound became too hard and they began to slide in wet weather conditions. It was a high time to purchase something new and something better. My choice was the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 as I have summer tyres from the same manufacturer. They are very quiet and almost as comfortable as my summer Goodyears. Their wet grip is astonishing. Although the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 is not quite a sporty tyre model, it is a real revelation for me. The price was really good. Absolutely no problem in steering on fresh or frozen snow. My car clutched the surface as if it was summer with summer tyres on. I agree with the comments I found on the Internet. The Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 is a perfect tyre for all those who look for a reliable product from premium segment. I do strongly recommend these tyres.

    I do not drive a lot but I decided to tell something about the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres. Unfortunately, the last winter season was not rich in snow and slush so I was not able to test my newly purchased tyres. However, I noticed that their grip and braking in dry and wet weather conditions is great. I can say that the driving comfort is really good. Fuel consumption is not high. Internal noise level is very low. The tyres are very quiet. Their price could be a bit lower but I understand that these are top quality tyres. They are worth each penny. When you try to make your car unstable and you try to lose a grip, it is a very difficult to do so. The tyres prevent your car from skidding and they help to eliminate an aquaplaning phenomenon. The Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 are very good tyres and I recommend them to everybody.

    I was looking for some comfortable tyres. The main criteria for me is the noise level. I decided to purchase a set of Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres. I wanted to make my vehicle as comfortable as possible and I am really satisfied. The tyres generate definitely a lower noise than my previous Dunlops. My Mazda 6 became a silent vehicle. The biggest surprise is that they are quieter than my summer tyres. They are very good in winter conditions. I read some reviews about these tyres and I know that the braking distances on snow covered roads are much shorter if compared to predecessor. I bought these tyres for a winter season but I think they would be perfect for summer as well! After doing 3000 miles the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres still look exactly the same as when they were new. There are no signs of a tread wear.

    The Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres are great! They help to keep you moving in even the most extreme winter weather. I drive mostly on highways. In my opinion these tyres are very comfortable and they perfectly stick to an asphalt both in dry and wet weather. I cannot tell how are they doing on ice because I did not have an opportunity to test them in such conditions. An average fuel consumption in my car is 0.2 liters more when compared it to my summer tyres. A tread optimal performance indicator allows you to keep an accurate eye on the tyre’s tread depth. In conclusion, my car feels better to drive on the Goodyear Ultra Grip 9 tyres. I do recommend this set of tyres to everyone who plan to buy good winter tyres. They look good. They are safe and they can be used in all weather conditions.
