Goodyear announces SKU expansion for UltraGrip Performance 3

Goodyear has announced that it will continue the expansion of its premium winter tyre, UltraGrip Performance 3. The award-winning tyre has proven its excellent performance across Europe with cutting-edge technology.

Throughout 2024, more than 40 new SKUs will enter the market, with many already available to customers. The significant increase will boost Goodyear’s addressable market for winter tyres, as well as reflecting its focus on the segment.

Overall, 90% of the new UltraGrip Performance 3 sizes are 19-inch and above, in response to market trends shifting to larger rim sizes. The tyre is optimized to fit a wide range of modern vehicles including popular EVs (e.g. Volkswagen ID.7 Tourer, Renault 5 E-Tech, Porsche Taycan and BMW i5). Like all Goodyear tyres, UltraGrip Performance 3 is EV-ready thanks to special features which improve efficiency and reduces interior noise, making it ideal for the very latest vehicles coming to market.

Class-leading technology

Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 3 represents exceptional grip and performance for winter driving. Its performance derives from Goodyear innovations such as Snow Protect Technology and Wet Grip+ Technology, which optimize the tyre for the winter driving season.

The tyre is exemplary in extreme winter conditions, with its winter performance having won a number of European tyre tests, including those conducted by Auto Bild in 2023, where it was awarded “Eco-Master” and “Green Tyre” of 2023/241.

What’s more, the tyre not only delivers exceptional performance, but also offers comfort and convenience. Goodyear SoundComfort2 technology dampens road noise for a quieter driving experience, while Goodyear SealTech2 can effectively seal tread penetrations of up to 5mm in diameter, giving drivers greater convenience.

Sonia Leneveu, Director Marketing Consumer Europe, Goodyear, comments on the Goodyear UltraGrip Performance 3 line extension: “Goodyear has committed to investing further in one of its latest winter tyres. The increase in available sizes is a testament to the popularity and performance of the product. The advanced technologies all add to the appeal of this tyre, which has already been recognised in the industry as one of the best winter tyres available.”
