EfficientGrip Performance


205/55 R16 V (91)

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

  • Great choice, quick delivery. Excellent service. 5 stars all the way.

  • I love these tyres, I feel very safe even in very wet conditions. They are equally as good in the dry, with low Road noise.

  • The tyres are really grippy from day 1 but was struggling to squeeze 15000 miles out of them.

  • Excellent service from the Orpington Branch of PTA. Very pleased with the tyres. Steering lighter and car quieter. Wheel balancing also spot on. Have used this branch before and would highly recommend them.

  • Much better wet weather grip, road noise considerably reduced. Fuel consumption up slightly, and a much smoother ride. I have just driven 5000 miles on these tyres. And tread wear appears to be negligible. The car is Renault Megane 2.1.5 diesel engine. I would recommend these tyres for this particular model of car. Excellent tire at this price.
