Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance

EfficientGrip Performance

215/50 R17 W (95)

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

  • Significantly quieter than the previous and definitely more grip, particularly in wet conditions.

  • Although these tyres are obviously better than my worn Michelin’s which they replaced I think there is not much difference between the two. The Michelin’s are probably better. Still, I have no complaints about my new Goodyear’s and will probably buy the same again to match the back with the font.

  • Very good, just a pity they were not the ones i ordered.

  • Very well, particularly after a recent downpour following several days of dry weather.

  • Very well. The grip seems to be excellent and Road noise is significantly lower from these compared to the tyres they replaced. I had a puncture in one of the tyres very soon after having them fitted and had probably driven several hundred miles (mostly at motorway speeds) in the few days it took for me to find the offending nail after noticing the pressure was low - so it performed exceptionally well to have remained safe with no sudden deflation/blowout, no doubt avoiding a nasty accident. Luckily the puncture was reparable so I'm hoping both tyres will now last as long as I originally expected them to.
