EfficientGrip Performance


205/50 R16 W (87)

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

  • Excellent grip in the wet and provide much better feedback from the steering, especially when cornering. Too early to say whether my fuel consumption has reduced during my normal motorway run.

  • Excellent road grip would buy again fitting service excellent

  • noticed an immediate difference to the feel of the drive having changed both back wheel . much quieter and comfortable . feels like driving over cotton wool :-)

  • My Car feel much better to drive and even though the tyres have hardly scrubbed in the improvement over my last tyres is obvious. Grip in wet is brilliant, I no longer feel the car being light coming off a roundabout. In the dry the tyre feels grippy and I feel confident in driving my car enthusiastically. The comfort of the tyres is excellent too, they are quiet and absorb minor imperfections in the road surface. A high quality made in Germany tyre from Goodyear. I would highly recommend these tyres and I will definitely buy them again.
