The Goodyear Efficient Grip Tyres are premium touring summer tyres, mainly designed to be fitted into passenger cars. It's a good all-rounder, and the overall best when it comes to economy.
With improved grip and shorter braking distances on wet roads, the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance are certainly made to feel good. They are A-rated for wet grip, the highest rating under EU regulations.
They have lower fuel consumption because of the FuelSaving Technology, creating a new base compound that reduces the tyre's energy dissipation. Reduced rolling resistance (by a whopping 18%) means improved fuel efficiency for the driver.
Next, the WearControl Technology provides a needed and optimal balance between low rolling resistance and wet grip, and shouldn't dissipate with wear, either.
The ActiveBraking Technology makes the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance have shorter braking distances, up to 2 meters even, by increasing contact between the tyre and the road surface.
The EfficientGrip certainly shines on wet, even soaking roads, where it's at its best with almost no competition, feeling secure and well-balanced, with plenty of grip even on long turns. Wet cornering and aquaplaning are also top notch.
While all of the above comes at the cost of slightly less impressive performance in the dry, it's a small trade-off. While it can feel a bit soft, it does retain grip and the pace is great and braking is sufficient.
The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance Tyres are a great buy. They were named "Best Buy" by multiple tests, after all.More...
