Goodyear Ultra Grip Winter
Initial Review: 2,000 miles on tires
March 01, 2014

My first ever set of snow tires, I've lived in Michigan my entire life and always thought snow was something you just learned to drive in, tires were less important than your ability to handle conditions. I was wrong, this was the year to learn this lesson, I haven't seen the pavement on my road since December 18th, it snowed 3 more inches this morning, March 1st. These inexpensive tires have turned my old T-bird into a winter driving wonder, I haven't had this much snow fun since I was a teen. Snow tires don't just let you go in the snow, you can turn and stop also. Experimentinig in places I know to always be slippery, I could slamm on the brakes and it just stopped, Ican't say it's like driving on dry pavement but it sure is confidence inspiring. It makes winter driving feel safer. I will never go a winter without again.
