EfficientGrip Performance

195/50 R15 V (82)

Goodyear have constructed the EfficientGrip Performance with 'ActiveBraking Technology' which increases the level of contact between the tread and road surface. This technology leads to greater levels of traction and shorter braking distances - internal tests carried out by Goodyear have shown this has reduced braking distances by up to 8 metres on wet roads.

The tyre also features Goodyear's 'WearControl Technology' to ensure that the tyre has a low level of rolling resistance. Not only does this help to save fuel, but it also means the tyre wears evenly throughout its lifespan.

To lower the levels of rolling resistance of the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance, a newly designed base compound has been created that reduces the resistance of the tyre by up to 18% compared to previous models.

In 2014 the tyre was named 'Best Buy' by Auto Express and in the Which? tyre tests.


Customer Comments

  • Road noise much reduced while traction improved, including when driving on snow. The ride over rough surfaces is more comfortable, probably due to the rubber being more pliable.

  • Absolutely fine, as expected, a big improvement on the previous budget tyres.

  • First time I had to sort tyres out and I knew very little about the subject but having been quoted what I thought was a very high price, needed to explore more. Once pointed in the direction of your website it was easy to figure out, buy and book. The garage I choose from the website was brilliant so a painless experience and I will be using again should I need to

  • Excellent wet grip no aquaplaning on motorway.

  • Very happy so far, not much grip on the slimy salted roads at present but better than the worn Uniroyal Rainsports I had on before were performing. Nothing grips well on the roads when they keep "gritting" though. Looking forward to some nice clean roads to really test them out but the one wet day we've had since I had them on the car the tyres gaves impressive grip. I suspect these will be very good going by my experience.
