Goodyear's Ultra Grip Performance 2 tire is intended for all types of passenger cars, and performs slightly better on ice than the standard Ultra Grip Performance model. It performs well in dry conditions and very well in snowy, wet, and icy conditions. The treads use a silica and polymer rubber blend to improve grip on snow, ice, or cold wet surfaces, and to improve braking distances. There are four different block sizes on this tire, giving even wear and making the ride more comfortable and quiet. The V-grooves are deep and efficiently remove water and slush, and waffled sipes improve gripping power in winter conditions.
