AKRON — Goodyear's WinterCommand Ultra tire — which was among the new products promoted at the tire maker's Customer Conference held in early February in Aurora, Colo. — is now available for purchase in the U.S. and Canada.
According to Goodyear, the studless tire excels in wet handling, wet cornering grip, deep water curved hydroplaning and ride comfort, providing optimal grip for drivers looking to maximize traction and improve starting and stopping in winter conditions.
The Goodyear WinterCommand Ultra features:
- The Cryo-Adaptative compound, engineered to improve pliability to let drivers own the road in extreme cold;
- V-Tred Technology, featuring hydro dynamic grooves to maximize water, slush and snow evacuation while maintaining ride comfort;
- ActiveGrip Technology, offering "exceptional" handling and traction in wet and slushy conditions; and
- Active Block Cuts and Adaptive SipeGrip Technology, increasing grip under slippery conditions caused by rain, snow and ice.
