Exclamation Excessive noise from Goodyear Ultra Grip snow tires

I Installed a set of four Goodyear Ultra Grip snow tires on my Mountaineer a couple of days ago and I am finding them very noisy . Anybody have any input . I am certainly not unhappy with how they work in snow I might add.

Except that they are Goodyears. I'm suprised you have any traction at all.

I have never had a Goodyear tire I liked. Plus I won't give the rediculous price they want.

Part of the nature of aggressive tread. Quiet is long lines running with the tire. Quiet but terrible traction in the snow and mud.

Opposite is tread running against the tire. Widthwise. Noisey but will bite and throw the snow.
You make you choices, traction or quiet.

Is it a snow tire or a winter tire??

A snow tire to my knowlage is nothing more than a soft all season with aggressive tread to bite in the snow.

A winter tire has deep sipes and is made of a silica compound to keep it soft and plyable in icy conditions as where a traditional snow tire will harden.

Winter tires are not really noisy.But I don't sell Goodyear snows ethier.Should have bought a Yokohama Ice Gaurd,Michelin X-Ice,Or a Dunlop Grandtrek winter tire.

04 PI swap,SVO Supercharger 8-9 psi,Alcohol injection,39lbs Cobra injectors,XCal2-Walbro 255 LPH fuel pump,4.10 T-Lok,2003 4R70W built to withstand by RobertP,450hp JMOD,3800 circleD stall,trucool 4739 Trans Cooler,Dynotech 3.5 Driveshaft,70mm T/B,SCP Cold Air Intake,90mm LMAF,JBA headers,Magnaflow Midmount,No cats with 3inch piping,Vogtland 1.6inch drop,Cobra R's and xenon body kit.

Its slow, Really.

....or Bridgestone Blizzak, or Wintermark.

There are two types of winter tires, studless and studable. I would not call any tire without sipes and a soft compound a winter tire.

Blizzaks are a great tire.


I ran Nokian Hakapalita's on my 97 Blazer and the Ice traction and overall driving on the snow covered roads was a breeze.Nokains are the best winter tire on the market IMHO.Previous Test have proven them to out perfom alot if not all of the competitors.

Here is a very un official test of snow tires but I had a demonstration this morning.

Wife is in the LHS which has 4 year old Michelin Artic Alpins. Almost on the wear bars. Still soft but no tread depth left.

I'm in the Mustang. 1 year old GoodYear Nordic winter tires. Very deep tread. Great tire in powdery snow but wet, slippery snow still handicaps the Mustang, good tires on not.

Anyways. The LHS is lacking very slightly in stability, I'm assuming that's the tread depth.
Mustang is tracking well. ***Another believer in better tires on the rear***.
As for takeoff, the LHS was kicking my ass off every redlight. Truth probably is, my wife was not even trying either.

We are having a great big old fashioned snow storm today and my complaint about noise is gone.These Goodyear Ultragrips are absolutely great in the deep snow,and combined with the Mountaineer AWD make an almost unstickable combination.
