Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 2 ROF
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.
Silent TUV Claims TÜV SÜD Automotive test results on snow, ice and wet* The UltraGrip Performance 2, which has been independently tested by the German Testing and Certification Company TÜV SÜD Automotive contributes to a highly sophisticated driving performance in all win.
EU Tyre Label and Efficiency Classes
The European Union, under CE 1222/2009, has mandated that all tyres manufactured after the date of July 1 2012 for cars and commercial vehicles include standard EU Tyre Labels classifying them by three performance characteristics:fuel efficiency classified from A to G,wet grip classified from A to G, and noise emission in decibels.
Categories of tyres unaffected by this regulation include: retreaded tyres, professional off-road tyres, racing/sports car tyres, as well as certain types of tyres designed to improve traction such as studded tyres, T-type temporary spare tyres, tyres for cars built before 1990, tyres with a maximum allowed speed of 80km/h, tyres for rims with a diameter less or equal to 254 mm or greater or equal to 635 mm.
This label is intended on one hand to promote economic and ecological efficiency in traffic, as well as increase road safety, and on the other hand to help consumers select appropriate tyres by ensuring a certain degree of product transparency.
Nevertheless, the label has been criticized for only showing a very limited number of characteristics. Professionals argue that tyres have many more features that are important and relevant to road safety, including but not limited to aquaplaning properties, driving stability, service life, product properties on wet and dry roads other than wet grip, properties on snow.
Tyre manufacturers suggest that the test results from various institutions and industry magazines should remain a very important source of information for the end consumer, because they focus on and rate a wide variety of tyre properties and features.
