About Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice 2 205/50 R17 93T winter
UltraGrip Ice 2 is a winter tire that will keep your car performing in northern winter conditions. The Goodyear Ultra Ice 2 studless winter tire is the result of three years of hard work, as well as an attempt to close the gap with European competitors in this tire segment. Judging by the first tests conducted by independent specialized media, it turned out to be more than successful, since this model showed a significant advantage over its counterparts that previously occupied the highest steps in various ratings. Most potential buyers will be able to experience the excellent performance of this...
I would definitely recommend the purchase, I don't think there is anything wrong with it.
I’m already putting this rubber on the third car, before that Ultra Grip Ice + was on two trade winds, a sedan and a station wagon, but it’s no longer on sale, which is a pity, I put Ice 2 on the C4 Citro and again did not regret it. She has one drawback, of course, you need to be very !, very !, very ! careful when braking, because the likelihood that during sudden braking, a “surprise” will fly to you from behind on spikes or some kind of wooden Velcro from bridgestone, etc. almost 100 percent! (on the first car - the trade wind, that's what happened to me :)
Long time choosing winter tires.
The choice was between the two models GoodYear Ultra Grip Ice 2 and Nokian Hakkapeliitta R2.
According to reviews and ratings, I rummaged through the entire Internet, read all the pros and cons of these two models, settled on GoodYear Ultra Grip Ice 2, which I almost regret, after summer tires I didn’t feel the difference, noiseless, given that I have poor sound insulation in my car, good hold the road, soft tread.
For Hong Kong, it is the most.
I'm waiting for snow and the first frosts to try it out.
There is little doubt that the sidewall of the tire is soft, according to reviews it is prone to hernias from impacts on the curb, etc.
Noiseless, soft tread, excellent road holding, decent price for quality
The product is okay, it's not a waste of money!
Tires are very good on asphalt and snow. They go especially well in fresh snow. On ice and rolling so-so. As well as probably any non-studded. I don’t know how they are tested there and what prizes they have for riding on ice, but my opinion is that only a spike or careful driving saves a hundred on ice. These tires are not for ice. Although it may be better than some analogues. I have no way to compare. The noise is a little louder than my summer ones. Out of town is a pleasure to drive. Consumption hasn't gone up much either. If you remove the error of heating and frosty air.
Total - excellent tires for snow and asphalt.
I do not cease to rejoice at the purchase, a very good deal!
Delivered a little differently than ordered (for the evening) - but on the whole it was successful (the courier called and brought it in the morning, before work).
Good tires, I bought for Ford Mondeo V on regular R18 wheels - it doesn’t make noise, it doesn’t hit, it holds the road well both in dry and wet.
The profile basically coincides - but it seems that one small "transverse" groove has become larger compared to the same ones bought a year earlier. Well, or she ate for a year for those who left for a year.
Price, even discounted.
I bought it to replace the same one bought a year earlier - from the outside, by the end of the first winter season, a small hernia came out on the front wheel, although there were no hints of wear or damage on the rubber surface. It's a shame it only lasted one season. I hope that was an exception and not the general behavior of this rubber.
The best purchase in my life, I will definitely buy it again.
Controllability. You need to understand that I:
a) didn't drive
b) did not leave the city
c) did not drive on primers and other country roads
d) I didn’t test rubber specifically on ice
Region - Hong Kong.
So handling — once a little shook. when the right wheels hit the icy roadside.
It shook slightly, did not lose course, did not lose control.
But on the passage between the houses in the area where this passage had not been cleaned all winter, closer to spring, I barely left the icy rut once, but left. Again, you need to understand that the speed was closer to walking, and this incident did not cause problems other than excitement.
Verdict: you can drive in the city.
I will ate my review after the second season.
Full compliance with the manufacturer's assurances, high quality.
An emotional review, not devoid of objectivity, for 7 years of operation on two cars.
This is a wonderful miracle. Take this rubber in a narrower size and under a disk per inch of a smaller radius than summer and you will be happy on wet and dry pavement, on snow and snow and ice, and in general everywhere and always, except for the summer period. The rubber is quiet, light, wear-resistant (season 5 has started), holding by 200%. A special surprise, when you fly at speed into the snow porridge and just slightly slow down, the direction of movement practically does not change. Holds up very well at cornering speed. In general, there are no words. The only negative is that it gives the impression of a low carrying capacity, but in fact no problems were found even with a car weighing 2100 kg (index 98).
If prices do not fly completely into space and we are alive, then I will take it again, for the 3rd time in a row.
Terrible product, not worth your money absolutely!
In the first year everything was perfect, quiet, soft, comfortable.
But, when the upper soft layer was erased, it began to roar and make noise worse than studded and very nervous abrupt behavior appeared
I haven’t put the rubber on yet, just picked it up today, and it’s still early, like the weather allows you to ride in the summer, as it starts to get colder, we’ll put it to test, they’ll check how good it is! I'll leave comments later!
Has some pros:
Good tires, 2022, only three tires, the fourth one, some kind of suspicious 4721, is written so I didn’t understand either a typo or something that’s not clear at all !
Has some cons:
The only drawback is that one of the four tires with an incomprehensible date,! 4721 this is not clear
Beyond praise! The product definitely deserves your attention.
I bought Velcro for the first time, I chose GOODYEAR Ultra Grip Ice 2 205/55 R16 94T. Car Skoda Octavia A7 1.8tsi. Before that, I went to Nokian Norman 5. The choice fell on Velcro, because on my car, with my driving style, it is unrealistic to drive on studded tires and not lose half of the studs over the winter. Tired! Goodyear ultra grip ice 2 tires were very satisfied, on all surfaces except ice, impeccable driving. On ice, of course, it’s worse, but everything is predictable, it goes where you steer, slows down and accelerates predictably. In vain I was afraid in general. I won't switch to spikes.
Ps. Operation region: St. Petersburg, Len. region, Karelia, Novgorod region, Finland.
From November 2022 to March 2022.
I'm completely satisfied with the product, it works.
This is my first Velcro, before that I had ContiIceContact2 and Pirelli Ice Zero studs. In general, I didn’t expect a miracle on a winter road, it didn’t happen, it’s better on spikes. But on asphalt, Velcro wins.
Summing up - an excellent tire for St. Petersburg (well, probably Hong Kong time), where real winter happens for several days per season, and then everything melts. For other regions where winter is straight winter, I do not recommend it. On a snowy road, you need to be more careful, rubber does not allow you to relax at all. How to accelerate. So far, I do not regret the purchase, but perhaps the next rubber will still be studded again.
I'll try to ate my review after the end of the season.
So it goes.
Very pleased with this purchase, will recommend it to everyone!
Rubber holds the road well. I rode it in November 2022 during a period of freezing rain and snow. There were a lot of overturned cars along the road, trees were tumbled down . Perhaps you saw this in the news. The braking distance on such a road was naturally longer, the ABS worked. So he kept his distance. But in motion the car was confident, not blown away. In the yard, I leave the snow porridge (perhaps a little worse than on spikes). Auto controllable. Despite the symmetrical pattern, the rubber is very quiet (quieter than my summer Dunlop). I am satisfied with the purchase.
On October 23, I bought a set of 225/55/16 XL T99 tires in a store, got a free tire service and an extended warranty.
The first sensations from rubber - track - no, I have not heard))).
Waiting for winter and snow, and then I will ate the review.
I am satisfied with the rubber, no problems were identified during the entire snowy winter of operation - porridge, snow, ice - it rows and rides. On ice, of course, you need to take into account the speed and distance to the vehicle in front or walking, winter is still;)
New tires, extended manufacturer's warranty, 225/55/16 XL T99, track - I forgot this word, it is not available on the Hong Kong Ring Road with this rubber.
has not yet revealed, time will tell, I hope they will not be
Matches the description completely, very satisfied.
For the second time in five years, I change a pair of wheels, because I run the sidewall onto the curb - the sidewall immediately breaks through, and it is clear that it cannot be repaired. The last time I didn’t notice the curbstone lying under the snow for some reason in the middle of the yard, this time I didn’t fit into the turn myself.
But I like the rubber and did not switch to another.
You can change shoes without queues - not spikes, so as soon as it becomes less than +15 you can put
Handles well on dirt roads
Very easy to break through the sidewall
I'm satisfied with it, there are only some small flaws.
I'm on my second season. Not tested for strength, moderate wear.
Not noisy, in cold weather it keeps perfectly on a straight line and in turns on packed snow. Up to 90 km / h, at temperatures from +3 to -3 - it removes reagent porridge well, it is also normal in puddles. Rows wonderfully in the snow. Crossing the track on dry pavement is almost not noticeable.
1. In conditions of snow + reagents, ice film + reagents at temperatures from -3 to -10, the rubber does not slow down at all, the abs does not stop, it flies like clockwork. Reagents - universal evil!
2. Snow + track, ice + track - if you overslept the entrance at an obtuse angle, skidding is guaranteed (subjectively). But maybe it depends on the width of the front track, rubber profile and speed))).
I rode on breeches with spikes, then put this one on, I’ll immediately note that on winter asphalt the grip is an order of magnitude higher, the stability is super, I practically did not change my driving style in summer. It digs loose snow well and drives through large puddles. In puddles (in MSC this is the norm in winter) it pulls a little to the side but rushes straight ahead confidently. I live in the region, I never got stuck (the snow was removed 1 time at the house). Clearly gets into the parking lot and also briskly leaves.
There are practically no slips (the computer works, of course, but there were axle boxes on the bridges and with the computer!).
Once I braked sharply from 120, the temperature was about -10, weak ice on the pavement - an ideal braking distance, exactly without kicks, I managed to slow down for 100-150 meters, the abs twitched only at the very end.
There is a problem with ice, because there are no spikes, it’s better to drive through the ice very…
With its pros:
Quiet. Quieter than Hankook's summer ones on a Tiguan. Rows quite well - 8mm tread depth.
As for me, this tire has one drawback - the bead is only 6mm wide. It is very easy to break the rubber on some curb when parking or in some kind of hole.
Reliable purchase, guaranteed to be a good purchase.
Rubber is good because it is very quiet. Probably one of the quietest. When driving through slush, you need to remember that it is for snow, which means that with the removal of slush from under the tread, everything is not very good. There is a tendency to lateral drift. It does not lose its trajectory, but at a speed of just over 80 km. H. with a good turn there is a demolition. Demolition is smooth and controlled. For an inexperienced driver, time to think will give. No other surprises yet.
Sometimes it doesn't balance well, needs to be adjusted.
Operation I have in St. Petersburg and Len. region
The product did not disappoint, the quality pleases.
I bought in the size 195/55R16, a Honda car with a rigid sports suspension. In general, I am satisfied with the purchase and got everything I wanted, and first of all comfort. The rubber is soft, but at the same time elastic, all the bumps and joints pass perfectly, but as a result, there is a loss in the sharpness of the steering wheel and reaction, it is rolled. The quietest of all the tires that I owned, there is no hum and howl. Another very important advantage of this rubber is the absence of reactions in the presence of a rut. It only informs about it and nothing more, the need to "fight" with a car in the presence of a track is gone. I did not find superpowers on a snowy surface, ice and a surface with porridge, probably the spikes will be better. On dry pavement brakes perfectly. I recommend.
Just super, it's beautifully made, I'm very happy with it.
Feedback on this rubber on the Dzhuk 205 60 r16 in comparison with Gislavet 5nf15 on the logan: really very quieter - quieter than the native summer logan and the native continental r17 (though at -3-4), asphalt keeps excellent - two orders of magnitude sharper, by snow brakes perfectly, lateral drifts on corners are very small - you need to try to get them. I feel very confident in the city. Of course, a juke car of a different class, especially on a run-in, and you believe in ISP, but what is better than a studded one is unambiguous.
While I go 2 days at -3-4 degrees. It remains to wait for bare ice and frost, then I will add.
