Get Through This Winter With @goodyear_uk 's Awesome Winter Tyres!

Is your car struggling in the winter weather? Struggle NO more with GoodYears Excellent Value Winter Tyres.

After the inclement weather of the past month, it is becoming more and more apparent to fit winter tyres to vehicles.

Summer tyres are not designed to cope with snow and ice which is why tyre manufacturers such as Goodyear produce winter tyres. These tyres are built to ensure the same performance is possible in cold temperatures and bad weather.

Winter tyres offer a softer compound which reacts well to cold temperatures. They also have something called ‘sipe technology’ which grabs hold of the snow and ice within the tread pattern and uses it to create traction between the tyre and the road surface, this enables cars to continue as normal, whatever the weather.

Goodyear’s latest winter tyre technology comes in the shape of the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 Performance. The tyre was specifically developed to deliver solid performance on slush, snow and on icy roads, and came to the market on the basis of extensive consumer insight research and ongoing analysis of winter road and traffic realities across Europe, particularly in climates like the UK. The results of this research showed that there was a significant demand for solid handling, braking and grip capabilities in a tyre, building on consumer concerns over vehicle control in snow.
All-in-all, the tyre was developed to ensure it could function in an often varying winter environment, which is what we see a lot of in the UK.

We have the GoodYear UltraGrip 8 Performance on our Seat Leon FR and would definitely recommend them to everyone we know. We feel 100% safer now that we are using them, our summer tyres just couldn't cope the way that these do. They are pretty awesome!

Let me tell you why these GoodYear UltraGrip 8 Performance Tyres really are worth buying:

Confident handling on snow - Travel with confidence on snow-covered roads. The UltraGrip 8 Performance provides superior grip and braking on hard-packed snow, thanks to the integration of three different types of sipes. The saw-shaped central rib works like a snowplow, grabbing onto surface snow for extra traction.

Excellent performance on ice - The UltraGrip 8 Performance features a large contact patch that improves handling on ice. The silica tread compound maintains good grip at low temperatures.

Reduced risk of aquaplaning - Special hydrodynamic tread grooves quickly channel water away from the tyre surface, helping you keep control on wet or slushy roads.

Fuel efficient design - The tyre’s low-weight construction reduces rolling resistance, lowering your vehicle’s fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

So why choose GoodYear?

Every Goodyear tyre has more than one hundred years of safety-driven innovation behind it. We’re committed to making tyres safer, longer lasting, and kinder to the environment. With Goodyear, you get performance and peace of mind as standard.

Safety together - As the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road, tyres play a vital role in driving safety. Goodyear is at the forefront in developing new technologies that help to keep you secure on every journey. From compound polymers that deliver better grip and braking, to tread patterns that keep working when worn, we’re dedicated to delivering products you can trust.

A tradition of innovation - At Goodyear, we’re always looking ahead. We’ve been advancing tyre technology since 1898 – producing the tyres for the first Ford Model T, playing our part in land speed records, and crafting the first tyre to land on the moon. Along the way, we’ve pioneered technologies that have been used in everything from aircraft to artificial hearts. We’re continually crossing boundaries to make our products better, which means you’ll always get a tyre based on the very best of our research.

Kinder to the planet - Goodyear technologies are helping to protect the planet too. Our latest tyres last longer, use fewer natural resources, and reduce fuel consumption. With our recent advances in renewable biomass materials, we’re working to reduce our impact further and help you leave a smaller footprint.

Get your car through winter with GoodYear. You won't be disappointed.

We had our very own GoodYear UltraGrip 8 Performance Tyres fitted last week onto our Seat Leon. Not only do they look fantastic but they make such a huge difference! The handling is so much smoother than it was before. We've definitely noticed a big improvement. We can now also drive in all weathers, which is great seeing as we live in the UK. All the rain, ice and snow last week was no longer a problem for us, with our new GoodYear winter tyres it was a breeze.

Don't they look amazing! My Mr has been showing them off all over town, he's more than happy with his new tyres. He's delighted and who can blame him.

Just look at those grips, the treads are so chunky - just  perfect for our UK Winter weather. We're now prepared to drive no matter what the weather throws at us!

We would gladly recommend these GoodYear UltraGrip 8 Performance Tyres to everyone! Keep your family safe this winter with a set of good quality tyres. Have a Good Year by going to GoodYear. A huge thumbs up from all of us here at Mummy Of 3 Diaries!

    1. Hi Laura,

      We will indeed, we still have the same set we used last year - all are in perfect working order too :) They are great tyres x

  2. I am in love with Dublin Hankook Tyres. Because they are really comfortable to use and they are long lasting. I can tell anyone who will use this tyre will say the same.
