Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance

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

  • Very quiet and much better ride than before. Appears to be just as good braking / handling balance although lack of rain has precluded wet weather testing. So far I would rate these tyres as excellent.

  • The car had Bridgestone run flat tyres the same as the original fit, which are noisy in comparison to the Dunlop runflat winter tyres I have just for winter. Just reverted to summer tyres again with the runflat Goodyears replacing the two rear tyres and even with just them on the rear and the Bridgestones on the front, it is noticeable quieter. It's not rained and no great mileage has been done, so cannot gauge grip or wear. We shall see if new Goodyears on the front make it even quieter, but that probably won't be until next year as they are nearly new. So, with just my short experience of Goodyears, I don't regret buying them. As for Blackcircles, excellent delivery time, far quicker than they quoted. I had them delivered to my servicing garage who could not match the price, but I wanted them to have the trade in fitting costs, which actually turned out more expensive than Blackcircle's fitted price.

  • Incredibly well. Steering feels lighter, grip feels better and the road noise has definitely dropped. Very happy with them indeed. Only time will tell on fuel consumption etc. I would highly recommend.

  • Good grip and quieter than previous tyres

  • To be honest the car performs just as it always did, which is all I need, and this in turn suggests these tyres are the right ones for the job.
