The Goodyear UltraGrip 8 is a winter tyre that provides quality handling on snowy, icy and wet roads and was named as an exemplary tyre in the 2012 winter tests by Auto Bild. Rather than asymmetrical tread, the Goodyear UltraGrip 8 has directional tread with saw-shaped central ribs which act like snowploughs to help remove snow and increase grip on the roads to maximise safety. Cars tend to use more fuel when travelling in wintery conditions but the UltraGrip 8 helps improve fuel efficiency and mileage.
XL stands for Extra Load. They use a more reinforced compound to carry heavier loads, but are the same size as normal tyres. If your car had XL tyres factory fitted then you must choose XL tyres for any new ones you buy.
Winter tyres perform best in temperatures below 7°C. The rubber compound is specially designed to react better in colder temperatures which improves road grip. Some winter tyres have studs to help grip on snow and ice.
