EfficientGrip Performance


205/55 R16 W (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

  • Drives a lot better smoother drive

  • Second time getting these tyres. Fantastic tyre for the price. Takes some getting used to when first on but soon feels normal.

  • They seem to be working well

  • It took me a little while to get used to the different feel of the ride (felt a bit bouncy) and handling but it's much better now. So far they are out performing my old Pirelli tyres, which were ridiculous in damp, let alone wet conditions. I actually had to do an emergency stop and was very impressed with these tyres!

  • The tyres are great and have even slightly increased the mpg
