EfficientGrip Performance

225/50 R17 W (94)

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

  • A good all round tyre. Confidence inspiring in the wet and dry. Quieter than the Continental sport contact 5 that they replaced. When pushing on they don't offer quite the same level of grip as the continentals, but then they are a little cheaper. Can't say I've noticed any difference in fuel economy, but then that's not something I'm really bothered about. Overall I'm happy with the tyres, and would have no qualms over buying them again.

  • Good grip and quiet

  • Superbly well and very quiet.

  • Very well, quiater than originals and feel very grippy.

  • Very well so far, no unusual wear, fuel economy in line with what I expect.
