Despite the summer heat, Goodyear is already preparing winter. The American tyre manufacturer has announced the launch of 3 new tyres for the UltraGrip range: UltraGrip Performance +, UltraGrip 9+ and UltraGrip Cargo.

Goodyear UltraGrip Performance+: top winter performance

The new Goodyear UltraGrip Performance+ is a winter tyre designed for high performance cars requiring superior winter capabilities. It has been developed using 2 new key technologies. The “Traction Protect Technology” includes a new resin which improves tyre deformation without affecting its structure to deliver better grip and braking performance. The “Winter Grip Technology” uses a new tyre compound which has better elasticity at low temperatures to provide more grip on snow and ice.  

The Goodyear UltraGrip Performance + winter tyre will be available by June 2019 with additional sizes planned for June 2020. More than half of the sizes will be available by August 2019.
