EfficientGrip Performance


225/40 R18 W (92)

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 Good Year tyres, well made

  • I had Continentals which only lasted 15000 very careful miles but the Goodyear are only half worn after the same mileage. They have more grip in the wet and dry and do not wander on road surfaces that have lines cut in them. Only replaced one due to pot hole damage bulging the side wall.

  • good quality.

  • very happy with the tyres with exception to the "rim protection" which is very poor, would not offer ant rim protection at all, the tyre manufacturer could be taken to court and sued under the trade descriptions act.

  • Quieter than PilotSport3 before. Handling feels better. My old tyres were fairly new - damaged by pot-holes - so I am able to compare new vs new tyres.
