Top 3 Goodyear UltraGrip Ice Arctic Reviews

Given 56% while driving a BMW 330D Touring (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 15,500 spirited miles
The tire ran amazing on packed snow and ice in the arctic north of sweden for the first 2 years. On the third year the grip fell of a cliff and almost got dangerous especially given the difference from earlier years. Swaped it with almost 7 mm of thread left since it would not brake.
