The Winter tyre for high performance cars. Offers secure grip on slippery roads, high aquaplaning resistance and good handling on wet and dry roads. Winter tyres Very flexibile Zig-Zag lamellas in the middle which gives an 'Extra Portion' Grip on snow and ice. The advantage of the new tires Goodyear Performance is a better shot at the snow and ice thanks to new lamellas construction. This mutually locked three-dimensional blocks already used in the tyre allowed to increase the number of slats in the tread parts. Tires Goodyear UltraGrip Performance on the wet surface and snow better adhesion to the ground by the last generation tread mixture with a high content of silica. This special mixture remains flexible even at very low temperatures.
The test-winning winter tyre for high performance vehicles
Secure grip on slippery winter roads
Good handling on wet and dry
High aquaplaning resistance
Quiet, comfortable ride
Quiet, comfortable ride. Experience quieter journeys with a block sequence arrangement that keeps tyre noise to a minimum.
Secure grip on slippery winter roads. The UltraGrip Extreme excels in all winter conditions, with a tread compound that maintains grip in extremely cold weather. Enjoy easier acceleration and hill-climbing thanks to circumferential saw grooves in the tread. Adaptive SipeGrip Technology enhances grip and braking ability on hard-packed snow and ice.
Good handling on wet and dry. Designed for high performance driving, the UltraGrip Performance 2 maintains optimal stiffness to give you confident wet and dry handling. The centre line provides continuous contact with the road surface, leading to more precise steering in dry conditions.
Reduced risk of aquaplaning. V-shaped tread grooves quickly channel water away from the tyre surface, helping you keep control on wet or slushy roads.
Adaptive SipeGrip Technology: 2 different types of sipes for 2 different purposes, always perfectly aligned with footprint leading edge.
Hydrodynamic V groove + intermediate circumferential grooves
Optimised polymer blend and advanced silica technology
2D zig zag sipes in the centre for excellent decoupling effect
3D waffle sipes in shoulders and intermediate zone for stiffness
Optimum water dispersal/ evacuation
Flexibility at low temperatures and higher interaction on wet and icy surfaces
Extra grip under slippery conditions like snow, ice and wet
Improved dry and wet handling performance as well as dry braking
Aquaplaning + slush planing resistance
Increased grip on all kind of surfaces (snow, ice, wet) at low temperature
Goodyear’s revolutionary RunOnFlat technology allows you to drive for up to 80km on a flat tire, so you can reach a suitable place to have it changed. Reinforced sidewalls in the tire mean it can support your car’s weight even with zero air pressure, making dangerous roadside tire changes a thing of the past.

EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union has introduced the EU Tyre Label by Regulation (No. 1222/2009) identically and bindingly for all EU member states. It applies to passenger car tyres, light commercial vehicle tyres and heavy commercial vehicle tyres produced after 01.07.2012.
Three different areas are tested: rolling resistance, wet grip and the rolling noise the tyre makes on the road.
The following are not affected by the EU Tyre Label: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing tyres, tyres with additional devices to improve traction such as spiked tyres, T-type emergency tyres, special tyres for fitting to vehicles first registered before 1 October 1990, tyres with a maximum authorised speed of 80 km/h, tyres for rims with a nominal diameter of 254 mm or less or 635 mm or more.
With this regulation, the European Union is pursuing the goal of promoting economic and ecological efficiency in road traffic as well as increasing road safety on the one hand, and on the other hand, granting consumers more product transparency and at the same time serving as an active decision-making aid.
Already during the incorporation, experts criticise the fact that the EU Tyre Label unfortunately only shows a few product characteristics. Apart from rolling resistance, wet grip and rolling noise, which are the main focus of EU tyre labelling, tyres have much more important and safety-relevant product characteristics, such as aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, braking properties on dry and wet roads, behaviour in wintry conditions, etc.
Tyre manufacturers point out that test results from various institutions and journals remain an important information medium for the end consumer. These tests usually focus on further safety-relevant product characteristics besides the EU standard qualifications for tyre labelling, which are always important for the final customer.
