Product description & features
Goodyear have constructed the EfficientGrip Performance 2 with ‘Wet Braking’ technology. Incorporating lower compound stiffness and an increased number of gripping edges to ensure quick water evacuation from the tyre, thus decreasing the braking distance in wet weather conditions.
The EfficientGrip Performance 2 has also been developed with high tread elasticity and increased flexibility to decrease the possibility of damage to the tyre on rough road conditions or over a wide range of temperatures. Due to this, the EfficientGrip Performance 2 has increased mileage performance.
The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 has been designed to feature three large ribs in the middle of the tread pattern. As a result, the overall stiffness of the tyre will improve and enhance the overall cornering stability in dry conditions.
The EfficientGrip Performance 2 has been proven to last 20% longer the next best competitor when impartially tested by TÜV SÜD Product Service GmbH in November 2019. This test shows that the Efficientgrip Performance 2 delivers the equivalent of an extra 11,000 km higher mileage.
What are summer tyres?
Summer tyres are specifically designed for warm weather conditions, particularly during the summer season. This type of tyre performs best when in seasons with warmer temperatures - above 7°C.
How does a summer tyre perform better in summer?
The technologies and tread patterns used in a summer tyre mean the tyres have high-quality features that are of benefit to driving in warm conditions. They typically use a softer rubber compound – designed for good grip and traction when driving on dry and wet roads.
Can you use summer tyres in winter?
Whilst summer tyres still offer adequate performances in wet and cooler conditions, it is recommended that you change. The tread design and technologies that are featured in summer tyres can harden in colder temperatures, resulting in reduced flexibility and decreased traction on snow and ice.
