    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.

Product description

Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance 195/55 R16 87 W RUN ON FLAT MFS, *

Technical description: The Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance is part of the Goodyear Efficientgrip range, a range that has proved popular with drivers.

The Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance has been given an "A" rating for grip on wet roads. Compared with other tyres, the model offers 2 metres (8%) shorter braking distances on wet roads and 3% shorter braking distances on dry surfaces. It also guarantees 18% lower fuel consumption.

Short braking distances. Thanks to its special ActiveBraking technology, the tyre is noted for its larger contact area with the ground, resulting in much shorter braking distances compared with tyres from rival brands. Specifically, the tyre offers 8% (2 metres) shorter braking distances on wet roads and 3% shorter braking distances on dry roads.

Grip on wet roads. The asymmetric tread pattern with wide longitudinal grooves and transverse grooves ensures optimal performance on wet surfaces. High specifications in this category are confirmed by the labels on most tyre sizes.

Tyre noise is also minimised. Tests carried out for labelling purposes found that the tyre's results were among the best out of all tyres with the same dimensions as the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance.

Savings. Excellent driveability does not prevent the tyre from also being cost effective. This is all thanks to its WearControl technology, which ensures an effective distribution of the individual tread elements, as well as excellent performance on wet surfaces and reduced rolling resistance.

In order to make the tyre more cost-effective, the manufacturer opted for a special rubber compound which, compared with other materials, uses less energy, which in turn reduces the car's fuel consumption. This technology makes the Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance the ideal choice for drivers looking for high performance specifications, driver comfort and steering precision

In tests carried out by ADAC in 2015, Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance came in 2nd place for size 185/60 R14 and 205/55 R16 tyres.

The group owns brands including: Dębica, Dunlop, Fulda and Sava.

The Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance tyre in size 195/55 R16 87 W, according to the manufacturer's information, has the following drivability qualities:

  • C
  • B
  • 67 dB
C B 67 dB

Fuel efficiency (rolling distance)

Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale. The highest fuel efficiency rating is A (green; the lowest rolling resistance), while the lowest fuel efficiency rating is G (red; the highest rolling resistance). Rolling resistance influences fuel consumption and vehicle emissions; the lower the resistance, the lower the fuel consumption and exhaust fume emissions.

Wet grip

Wet grip is the tyre's ability to adhere to the road surface in wet conditions. The EU rating focuses only on the wet braking performance of the tyre. Wet grip is rated from A to G, where A represents the best braking performance and G represents the worst. It is one of the most crucial safety parameters.


Tyres contribute to the amount of noise a vehicle generates. Choosing a tyre with a good noise rating will lower the impact of your driving on the surrounding environment.
