With the Coach range, Goodyear has expanded its truck tyre portfolio to coaches. The UltraGrip Coach is a winter drive tyre designed for long haul and intercity applications.

Excellent handling in snow and ice

In parallel with its Marathon Coach, Goodyear completes its new range of tyres for coaches with the UltraGrip Coach for drive axles. And, with this winter tyre, grip in snow and ice naturallytakes precedence over rolling resistance. There where the Marathon Coach achieved a B rating for the EU tyre label, the UltraGrip Coach makes do with a D. However, it makes up for this difference by delivering better performance at low temperatures. The semi-open shoulder design and high blade density tread blocks promote traction on snow and ice. And, the tread compound, based on Goodyear’s TravelMax technology, ensures a high mileage potential for a winter tyre.The UltraGrip Coach also has a wide tread with 3D blades that help promote even wear. According to the EU tyre label, this tyre has received a C rating for wet grip and has been measured at 73 dB for external rolling noise.
