The tyre has achieved the highest "A" rating for grip on wet roads. The Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance meets the expectations of even the most demanding drivers. As you would expect from a summer tyre, the model performs exceptionally well in variable weather conditions. Thanks to its asymmetric tread pattern, the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance ensures good water dispersal and excellent grip, even on very wet roads.
Compared with other tyres, the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance guarantees 2 metre (8%) shorter braking distances on wet roads and 3% shorter braking distances on dry roads. The model uses WearControl technology to ensure a balance between grip and low rolling resistance. This extends the tyre's lifetime, which means that the driver can enjoy its excellent performance specifications for its entire service life. The tyre's attributes also include short braking distances, which means that drivers of cars fitted with Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance tyres can feel really safe.
Its Fuel Saving technology helps limit energy losses, reducing this by around 18% compared with other premium tyres. External noise is another area where the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance outshines the competition. Thanks to its unique tread design and the use of a special compound in its production, the engineers behind this model have managed to significantly reduce tyre noise. The model is ideal for drivers looking for a tyre that provides not only safety and driver comfort, but also optimal performance across a range of surfaces in variable, often difficult weather conditions.

Previously, I had a not-so-optimistic view on Gooyear tyres. However, in spring 2013 I had to buy new tyres (size 205/55R16). By reading tests and reviews (only a few back then), I decided to take a risk and buy Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance tyres. Out of two leading brands, Goodyear and Dunlop, I decided to get Goodyear. As for now, I have driven 6500 miles. The grip on any surface type (wet or dry) is very good. Braking is superb, handling is very confident and quite fast, without any delays (but I can feel it’s not as fast as it was on my previous Dunlop SP Sport 01 tyres). The driving comfort on Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance is similar to winter tyres (I use Uniroyal MS 66), so I find it higher than on my previous summer Dunlops. Noise level is relatively low. When it comes to wear, my front tyres wore down by 0,7 mm and rear by only 0,4 mm (I checked them with tread meter after purchase and they were at perfect 8,0 mm). So I find it quite good. My driving style is moderate. Tread pattern is nice, it’s not revolutionary but it’s fine. Sidewall also looks good. Overall, I find Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance worth buying. I personally recommend them despite my point of view about the company, as for now they are good and I am satisfied with the purchase.
Unfortunately, I’ve been experiencing problems with Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance from the very start. First of all, they are difficult to balance. I’ve never seen so many weights on a wheel before. Secondly, they have been re-balanced in a few different fitting stations and still, there are vibrations at ca. 70 MPH. I have new wheels, and I have checked them at the station – everything’s fine with them. Generally Goodyear seems to ignore the customers and didn’t ground my complaint. I didn’t get any printouts from measurement devices, only a subjective opinion of a technician based on a road test. I decided to send them for an independent inspection. The tyre can be seen “jumping” clearly on a balancing machine. I definitely not recommend to get Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance tyres, and if you have already bought them, send them for a complaint inspection as soon as you have any doubts about what happens to them. When it comes to the procedure itself, Oponeo did their best in a professional way and I’d like to thank them for it. As I mentioned – I don’t recommend Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance. This was my third set of Goodyear tyres and made me stay away from them for a long time.
Gooyear Efficientgrip Performance are great tyres! They have low rolling resistance, due to which my car consumes 0,5 l fuel less and accelerates a bit faster. I was positively surprised by that fact and I can confirm it with a clear conscience. Previously, I used Pirelli tyres - they were great, but after doing ca. 20 thousand miles, their quality became very poor. Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance have good driving properties, which make the car grip the road well in the corners on both dry and wet. The tread wear is also very low. The tyre is soft, but the driver can feel it is them who's in control of the vehicle. Their drawback is lack of rim protector. They look normal, without any strange additions. They are also very quiet, so you can freely talk at higher speeds without any problems. Generally, I rate Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance very well at this moment, however I will be able to write more next year, after ca. 30 thousand miles.
Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance is a good tyre which grips the road very well. I personally rank the tyres according to their grip on wet surface, and Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance grips very, very well. On dry pavement the only tyres which have a problem are tyres with hard rubber compound (but due to that they are long-lasting) and old tyres. I chose these tyres with regards to safety of myself, my passengers and my car. And I wasn't let down. It's better to pay these 20 pounds per tyre more, but thanks to that you don't think if your car will swerve off the track on wet surface in the corner. The only drawback I see in Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance is too shallow side tread and I think that after the tread wears down significantly, the central grooves will be still deep and side ones won't even exist.
At the beginning of April, I have fitted Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance in place of my winter Fulda tyres. The size is 215/55R16 93 H. I am very disappointed in these tyres, especially when it comes to driving comfort. The car behaves in the smallest ruts like the tyre was punctured and swerves nervously. When it comes to noise level, I think they are rather loud. It may result from the fact that mornings in April are still rather cold. Sometimes I have an impression like I had wooden wheels. I also feel that my braking distance has prolonged. The greatest advantage of Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance is driving in the rain - the car handles very safely. At the moment, I have mixed feelings about Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance, but maybe I'll change my opinion when hugher temeratures come.
