Goodyear's Ultra Grip Ice tire is intended for use on passenger cars during winter months, and it is one of Goodyear's best-performing models for snow and ice, while it somewhat lacks in dry handling. The tread compound is unique and silica-based, which helps with snow and ice traction and braking, and it has a high blade density to increase surface area and edges to grip. The shoulder blocks are heavy and this promotes even tread wear, and overall the tread base is stiff to provide handling and continuous, even wear. This tire provides a somewhat quieter ride than the standard Ultra Grip model. This is the ultimate Goodyear ice-handling model.
