Latest Group Test Results

2011 Auto Express Winter Tyre Test - 2nd of 9 tyres

  • Overall - Excellent on snow, just misses out on the top spot thanks to trailing the Conti in other areas

2011 Auto Bild Performance Winter Tyre Test - 2nd of 7 tyres

  • Positive - Top winter tyres with excellent traction and shortest braking distances on snow covered slopes. Stable cornering with safe driving characteristics. Excellent aquaplaning properties

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.
