Top Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance Review

Given 84% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 7 TDI (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 1,000 spirited miles
Really quiet, no aquaplanning; but not good on snow espacially driving to uphills.
On my old car; i was using 175/65/14 Sava Eskimo + ; those were much more better that Ug8 performance

What's better in the snow, a 4x4 or winter tyres? Watch the video to find out!
Given 89% while driving a Alfa Romeo (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
A revelation. Grip in greasy roundabouts. Less noise. To be fair, had no snow so far in 2 winters. But am now a winter tyre convert. Only downside is -2mpg

Given 91% while driving a Audi A5 (255/35 R19 V) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Some car tire brands suit different cars and you can go from one brand to an other and it will transform your car. Had michelin pa3 tires as our winter tire on the car and have no complaints with these. However the goodyears have took the car to another level, the grip from these when setting off is amazing even in wet conditions. The car is planted and stable at all speeds and do give you total confidence in all weathers. Comfort level is just as good as michelins but noise level is much better. Brill tires and would recommend to anybody with 19 inch rims on the car in winter.

Given 86% while driving a Peugeot 508 SALOON (215/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 35,000 average miles
For a winter tyre it's really low noise.
wet road performance is perfect especially aquplaning is unbelieveble.
but in snow (winter tyre!!) I think not good enough by the way it's weird that the tyres are very good on the ice.
I drove them for about 35000 km. and there's still 6 mm. wear on tyre.
