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

  • 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.

  • With the weather turning colder and icy conditions I feel much more confident on the road now I have these tyres. Good preparation ahead of the winter

  • Very stable tyre , especially good in the wet, gives a lot of confidence when cornering on roundabouts... noticeable difference in noise levels inside the cabin..very quiet tyre, the decibel ratings confirm that.

  • Excellent, They feel safer and offer better grip.

  • Very soft tyrewall made the handling very vague. I would not recommend these tyres for anybody interested in handing of their car. I would not buy again.
