EfficientGrip Performance


205/50 R17 W (93)

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

  • Superb especially in the wet

  • So far so good. I think it will be a test of time to compare how good they are versus the continental's.

  • Drive feels better, not had experience of wet conditions yet so can't comment on braking. Can't see any change in fuel economy. They do seem a little noisier on motorways than the old tyres, when I compared ratings with those for the old tyre I was expecting the new ones to be quieter. I'm not talking deafening noise, can still hold a conversation comfortably in the car. First priority for me is good grip, then fuel economy, I would not compromise on these for a quieter tyre.

  • Very well, road noise massively reduced!

  • Very good. Road noise reduced and so much better in the corners
