Top Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance 2 Review

Given 51% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 30,000 easy going miles
I reviewed these on the 24th Dec 2014, so this is an updated review. I've completely given up on these tyres. Yes, they are quite and comfortable, but their poor grip on snow and the vague feeling on tarmac meant I could not suffer them, so I have given up on them and fitted some Nokian WR D3's instead. What a revelation - the Nokians are certainly noisier, but their road manners are superb and their grip on ice and snow remarkable. So glad I gave up on the Goodyears. If you tootle around the M25 in winter I guess they'd be a good choice, but if you need to drive on winter roads such as the Scottish Highlands they are terrible and best avoided.

Given 49% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 30,000 easy going miles
Very quite and comfortable but very poor handling and grip in snow poor.

Given 91% (breakdown) while driving a Ford Mondeo Titanium X (205/60 R16 T) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Bought them recently and the feel with the new tyres is amazing compared to my old Sepmerit Speed Grip I had on my Ford Mondeo. Bought 4 of the recently manifactured Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance 2. Also very good choice of size for the Mondeo, as it is a bit wider but yet a bit taller than the 205/55/16 tyre size. And the behavior of the grip is immaculate in wet and dry conditions, as long as the outside temperature is too cold. They are not as sticky to the road in too warm conditions.
