    Top 3 Goodyear UltraGrip 9 Plus Reviews

    Given 89% while driving a Kia Motors Soul 1.6 CDI (205/55 R16) on a combination of roads for 5,000 average miles
    They have been on the car this winter, around 8000km. It's a warm winter, so they have been on the snow only two short times. Everything went well, but I can't tell much really. In dry and wet, temps mostly between 5-15c, they behave perfectly. I can barely tell that they are winter tires. And there are no wear problems. A bit cheaper than Conti TS860, but they feel equally safe, GY might even be a bit more comfortable.

    Given 94% while driving a SEAT Arona (205/60 R16) on mostly country roads for 9,000 average miles
    Bought a set of these and 16 inch wheels for my Seat Arona, very comfortable and amazing grip, especially in muddy field run off, cold rain, sleet, snow, and frosty roads. Only had 2 days of snow and I could happily drive up and down hills past many cars which were stranded (including 4x4 on summer tires). Could drive along winding snow covered B roads at 40-50mph which shows how well they grip. The wet grip when temperatures 0-10c is amazing, feels as sure footed as driving in the dry. So even living in south of England, I am converted to seasonal swapping to winter tires having discovered you just feel safe.

    Given 88% while driving a Audi A2 (175/60 R15 H) on mostly motorways for 1,000 average miles
    I took a chance given the lack of reviews or tests at the time and have had these on my Audi A2 since November: Too early to rate the wear yet as I’ve only done 1000 miles or so, but these are great at dealing with all conditions you’re likely to find in rural southern England. Dry and wet braking are very good and they are quiet except on concrete road surfaces, but then what type is? We had a lot of ice on the roads here recently and I live in a hilly area - these dealt with it fine as long as you drove sensibly. I’ve not had a chance to try them in snow but the reviews suggested they will be good. Based on my impressions so far, I would buy them again. I’ll update once I’ve used them for a couple of full winters (so spring next year).

    I bought a set for the front axle for my 308 1.6bluehdi they are very very good in cold weather and/or rain i haven't had a real chance to drive them on snow or ice myself but my brother did and comparing them to nokian wrd4 that we have for a Clio iv diesel they are not at the same level on snow but having said that they are better in every other way , they will last for more , they are much more quiter especially while braking better fuel consumption almost like an all weather tire better dry grip and wet grip on heavy rain they seem to aquaplaning at about the same speed so yea great tires!
