Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance

EfficientGrip Performance

225/50 R17 W (98)

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 grip, best price I could find online. Overall very pleased.

  • Noticeably quieter than the original fit Hang-ons, even makes the local concrete topped bypass bearable. Difficult to say if handling is better, an E Class does not encourage enthusiastic barrelling down country lanes, but taking off sharply from junctions in the wet has yet to provide any of the wheel slip that occasionally afflicted the old tyres.

  • Grip, wear and noise level OK but minor car shake forward and backwards. Went to another tyre fitter to get wheels balanced. Improved but still not perfect.

  • Performing nicely. Noticeably quieter than Dunlops and Conti's on previously. Initial mpg dropped but seems to be on the rise again.

  • Very well. Similar to the continentals.
