The Goodyear UltraGrip GW-3 tire not only offers a wide range of sizes to fit a wide variety of passenger cars but also has an excellent performance on all winter roads. It is provided due to both the design of the tread pattern and several other design features, which will be discussed below.
This model provides reliability and handling on high-speed winter roads. Combining Goodyear's 3D-Bis technology (three-dimensional intermeshing tread blocks) and new high-quality winter tread rubber, Eagle Ultra Grip GW-3 tires have more sipes, stiffer tread blocks for optimal winter traction and high performance. on a wet and dry road. The tire provides high performance in all winter road conditions.
Excellent grip on both straights and corners
Like many other Goodyear models, this tire is equipped with a V-Tred tread. For this tire, it has been significantly redesigned, with the loss of the central longitudinal rib. Its design, which retains the "signature" V-shape, contains four rows of blocks located at different angles and converging exactly in the center of the tread. They are distinguished by a complex polygonal shape with curved edges, which, in combination with the above design features, improves several operational properties at once. A tire with this tread pattern demonstrates excellent straight-line stability and reliable cornering grip, as well as a shorter braking distance. All these characteristics remain so even on snow, thanks to the large distance between the blocks.
Short braking distances on ice
As you know, the greatest load during braking falls on the shoulder areas of the tread. It is here that the blocks are located at the smallest angle relative to the direction of travel, in fact transversely. The grip edges formed by them allow the tire to effectively decelerate, and thanks to the numerous sipes, also located transversely, even on icy roads.
Sometimes less is more
SoundComfort technology ensures a quieter and more comfortable ride by reducing the noise level inside the car by 50% *.
To hear a noise at different volume levels, click the corresponding icons on the right side of the page. The SoundComfort tires have a built-in sound barrier. This acoustic barrier reduces tire vibration and dampens the internal noise of your vehicle while driving, which reduces in-cab noise in half compared to conventional tires *
What's the bottom line? A quieter, more comfortable ride for you and your passengers.
While driving in a car, many factors affect the noise level: wind, speed, road surface condition, running engine, noises in the structure, as well as tires. One of the main sources of noise in tires is resonance in the air cavity, which occurs due to vibration of the air inside the tire and is transmitted to the vehicle structure.
Goodyear SoundComfort technology directly reduces resonance within the tire air cavity.
The choice is clear
The advantage of SoundComfort technology is that the increased comfort level does not lead to a decrease in performance and other characteristics. These tires have the same warranty as standard tires, the tires can be repaired and the performance is just as good - the only difference is that these tires are ... much quieter.
These tires are produced in winter and summer versions.
Main features of the Goodyear Eagle UltraGrip GW-3
- multidirectional hitching edges provide excellent stability on straights and in turns;
- the optimized shape of the tread blocks improves grip on snow, shortens the braking distance, reduces rolling resistance and noise level;
- the increased content of silica in the rubber compound gives the tread elasticity at low temperatures.
Wear-resistant and environmentally-friendly rubber
For the Goodyear tire, a unique chemical compound has been created. Microparticles of carbon black, silicic acid, and a complex of synthetic additives were added to the rubber, thanks to which the tires became more durable and reliable. The use of silica has also reduced rolling resistance, which has a positive effect on fuel consumption.
Tires of this series are not afraid of mechanical stress and can maintain an integral structure even after strong impacts. A multi-layered internal structure provides effective impact protection. The seamless belt and steel cord absorb impact energy, so the tread and sidewalls remain intact even after the wheels hit deep potholes, curbs, bumps, stones, and other obstacles.
- Clear and precise control.
- Enormous lateral pull.
- Very good acceleration and braking.
- Arizona is not the best place to test your winter grip.
Goodyear starts with several technological features imported from other tires for the tire, including:
- TripleTred Technology: Three tread zones - Water, Dry, and Ice - provide a wide range of traction in changing conditions:
- ComforTred Technology: A softer layer of rubber under the tread itself helps to make the ride smoother.
- TredLock Technology: Goodyear's 3D self-locking sipe, which has an internal topology that locks under pressure to prevent the tread block from bending, which would increase tread wear.
