Top Goodyear UltraGrip 9 Review

Given 86% while driving a Volvo 850 Saloon (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 3,000 average miles
Best wintertyre i have ever used. Previous tyres were nokian dr4, pirelli sottozero and michelin a3.
The ultragrip9 is not quite sporty, but so isn´t the car. But grip on snow and ice is beyond belief. A real revelation for me. Was quite good prieced as well.

Given 87% while driving a Audi A1 (185/60 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 4,000 average miles
A perfect winter tyre for city car. I tested it on snow wet dry and it outperformed my expectations. Really recommended for european winters (I live in north of italy)

Given 57% while driving a Citron berlingo (205/65 R15 H) on a combination of roads for 10,000 average miles
Fitted these following the great reviews however I'm completely disappointed with the outcome. Even from new these tyres would spin up on my 1.6 automatic Berlingo. After only 10k miles the outer tread is coming off in lumps inside and out and almost onto the wear indicators. Back to my trusted Vredesteins next. Goodyear, never again.

Trying to pick the very best winter tyre? Watch this!
Given 87% while driving a Mazda 3 Skyactiv 2012 (205/60 R16 H) on a combination of roads for 1,000 average miles
Probably the best winter tyres I have tried. They are very comfortable and quiet especially compared to the Bridgestone Blizzak LM-32 I had fitted the previous winter. They are also quieter amd more comfortable than my Michelin summer tyres. The wet and dry grip is good, but I cannot yet comment on ice and snow grip, but I expect those to be good as well based on other reviews. Wear is also difficult to comment on since I have not driven them for long time.
They might be a little more expensive than other tyres, but you really get what you pay for with these tyres. I will definitely buy again!

Given 99% while driving a Volkswagen Golf 1.9 Tdi (205/55 R15) on mostly country roads for 2,000 easy going miles
Spent the winter season in the French Alps and these tyres were amazing. We had 1 metre of snow one day and after digging the car out we had no need for snow chains, either getting out of car park and drove to ski resorts without any issues and felt very secure.

Also somewhat surprised on how quiet they were on driving from and back from the UK.

Highly recommend

Given 93% while driving a Vauxhall Corsa (185/65 R15 T) on a combination of roads for 8,000 easy going miles
Really good winter tyre. High levels of grip in the snow and on ice. So much so that the only hindering factor is the ground clearance of the vehicle. I was pushing snow with the front bumper and this was causing me to loose momentum but you cant fault the winter traction, its great.
There also a really good tyre in the dry and wet below 7 degrees. Very safe, good braking and offers high resistance to aquaplaning. Most notable is how quiet the tyre is and also how little fuel it uses. With only 5 MPG less than the Goodyear summer tyres i cant complain.
Certainly a tyre more suited to family cars, commuters or rural vehicles. If you were after a sportier ride for say a Maserati or Jaguar I would look at the Goodyear Ultra grip Performance.
This is a link to a video I took, a short trip in my vehicle fitted with Goodyear Ultragrip 9's.
Well worth the money, I paid £68 fitted and balanced each from my local tyre shop fitted them included in the blackcircles price.
