Tyre of the Month November 2015 – Goodyear UltraGrip 8

As winter is looming, we have decided to name the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 as our tyre of the month this November. This superior tyre delievers an outstanding winter performance and excels in tough conditions.

Enhanced Handling

Thanks to innovative Goodyear 3D BIS Technology, the UltraGrip 8 provides superior handling. This is because the optimised tyre shape allows more rubber to remain in contact with the road and this helps to increase control, even in tough winter conditions. The enhanced handling capabilities of the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 last for the life of the tyre as its next generation V-tread design means that tyre wear has little effect on handling properties.

Extraordinary Braking Capabilities

The Goodyear UltraGrip 8 offers shorter braking distances, even on snow, thanks to its innovative tread. The tread design features an interlocking block system which delievers braking distances on snow which are one metre shorter than that of its closest competitor*. The Goodyear UltraGrip 8 can also offer superior grip in cold conditions. This is due to its innovative winter compound which has been developed to keep the tyre supple at temperatures below 7ºC, which means that tyre contact with the road is not compromised.

High Aquaplaning Resistance

As well as offering enhanced handling, grip and braking capabilities in tough winter conditions such as snow and ice, the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 also offers a superior performance in wet, damp and cold weather. Its double V-grooved shaped tread ensures that resistance to aquaplaning is increased. This is because one groove has been specifically designed to rapidly evacuate water whilst the other continues to grip. This means that the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 can offer superior control in all winter conditions.
