Latest Group Test Results

2011 EVO Winter Tyre Test - 4th of 10 tyres

    2011 Auto Bild Winter Tyre Test - 4th of 12 tyres

    • Positive - Good winter tyres with good traction and stable cornering on snow. Excellent steering response on wet roads
    • Negative - Quite high pass by noise, average wear

    2011 Sport Auto Performance Winter Tyre Test - 4th of 5 tyres

    • Overall - While the Goodyear is closely related to the Dunlop, the different design approaches are obvious. The Goodyear has a much safer approach, which leaves the car understeering when it could develop extra grip at the risk of dynamic instability. Still, a good all round result, only slightly weaker than the Dunlop in the snow.

    Top Goodyear Ultra Grip Performance 2 Review

    Given 51% 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% while driving a BMW 230i (205/50 R17 V) on mostly town for 100 average miles
    If there was a score of 0 , this tire would earn it for snow and ice. Right out of my driveway, I'm skidding all over the place. Coming to a stop, my ABS is working overtime. Light turns green and I can't get traction, I'm slipping sideways. Light snow on the highway at 50mph is a white-knuckled shit-show.
    These tires are terrible. I felt safer on my all-seasons in the snow.

    One of the best winter tires I ever drove

    Very quite and comfortable but very poor handling and grip in snow poor.
