    Opinion from outside the UK

    After having driven several thousand kilometers on various brand tyres, I became interested in the GY Efficient Grip Performance. The price seemed a bit too high, but over time it became clear that the tyres are well worth the money. The tyre is quiet and comfortable and rides like a winter tyre in summer, very soft, but at the same time the steering is firm and the tyre grips the road well. The tyre is not easy on a heavy car like the Super, but it performs excellently. Whether accelerating, braking suddenly or changing direction, it holds the car firmly in place at all times. You can see that the engineers have spent some time and calculated a tyre that not only rolls gently, but also gives confident handling. The most important thing, however, is the fuel consumption, and this has dropped by 0.5l/100 km on the road, which I rate as a sensational result. The tyre itself is very quiet and comfortable to drive, which is exactly the tyre I was looking for. I do not know how the tyre will last, but so far I have driven 17k km on it and I do not see any signs of uneven wear. Let's hope for the best :) I can recommend the tyre. My fiancée also rides them. I recommended them to her because I wanted her to drive on tyres that were safe and economical. She is just as happy as I am. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    I have been riding these tyres for 5 months and they have covered a total of over 7,000 kilometres. The routes are varied: a bit of big city, but mostly a few hundred kilometre trips. The tyre is very nice for me. Soft sides make it possible to rock the car sideways by hand when standing still, which at first glance would seem to be a disadvantage, but thanks to this you can feel that the tyre grips the road firmly even during very sharp turns. It has good water drainage, so you don't feel worried when driving on wet roads. The only downside for me is how it looks after a few drives. The tyre looks like it has a bit of wear, with discolouration on the working surface border with the sidewall. As it is quite soft, you might be worried about rapid wear. It is only when you look closely that you can see that the tyre is not yet worn out after the specified distance. Overall, I am satisfied with the tyre, and as for the current state of affairs, I would recommend buying it. We will see after a full season and will come back to comment. Read more Collapse

    Opinion from outside the UK

    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. Read more Collapse

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.
