Goodyear's new Ultra Grip Ice WRT is the company’s first dedicated winter tire line for SUVs and light trucks.

“Coupled with a need to satisfy the performance requirements of drivers of these vehicles, Goodyear developed these new tires to provide enhanced traction in changing winter conditions,” says brand manager Gary Medalis.

They include the company’s Winter Reactive Technology, which Medalis describes as “a combination of innovative features that work together to help provide a balance of starting, stopping and turning action in a variety of weather conditions, such as snow, ice, slush, wet and dry.”

Further elements of Winter Reactive Technology include two- and three-dimensional tread blades, a directional tread design and a Winter Grip Compound.

The new edition is comprised of two distinctive tread designs – one for light-trucks and another for SUV/crossover applications.

The line is offered in 16 sizes – 10 passenger sizes in S speed rating and standard load rating, and six light truck sizes in Q speed rating and E load rating.

Vehicle applications include the Acura MDX, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Toyota 4Runner, Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder, Hyundai Santa Fe, Ford 150, Ford F250 Super Duty, Ford Expedition, Jeep Wrangler, Dodge Ram, GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Suburban.
