Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyre and an improved driving experience
Improved grip and reduced braking distance
This is an A-rated wet surface gripping tyre, which is the highest rating that can be awarded under European Union regulations! The Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyre offers a safety first combination of an improved wet grip with a reduced braking distance on a wet road surface. In addition, a driver will have the advantage of a lower rolling resistance and reduced fuel consumption.
With “WearControl” technology drivers using the Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyre are assured of the best possible balance being retained for the lifespan of the tyre. This is determined between the wet grip and rolling resistance advantages.
Fuel saving technology and active braking with Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance
The manufacturers utilise the factor of “FuelSaving” technology in the creation of an innovative base compound, designed to reduce the energy dissipation of the tyre. With the rolling resistance being lowered by 18 percent (4) it means that the fuel efficiency is improved and driving becomes more cost-effective.
Another technological benefit is “ActiveBraking” which increases the degree of contact between the Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyre and the road surface. This has the effect of creating a shorter braking distance, up to 8 percent or 2 metres on wet surfaced roads. When applied to dry road braking efficiency, the reduced distance is 3 percent! They are results that are safety oriented and motivate driver confidence.
The Goodyear Efficient Grip Performance tyre is a premium touring summer tyre designed for passenger cars.
Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance gets top marks in the wet 2013
On dry surfaces nowadays offer many summer tyre models performed well. In wet conditions, however, have in particular low-Pneus to frequently glaring safety deficiencies. The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance contrast convinces all along the line. In ADAC summer tyre test 2013 premium Pneu cuts as the best tyres from the wet. In addition, also leads to dry substrates no way on Goodyear tyres by: Only the Dunlop Sport BluResponse still provides with respect to the handling and braking properties during drought better test results.
Wet properties are crucial for a summer tyre
The profile of a summer tyre is optimized for the so-called wiping edge effect. The tread consists of numerous tread blocks that have so-called wiping edges. These act as small wipers and direct the water into the wide tread grooves from. A float in the wet (hydroplaning) is prevented. Often, however, this profile configuration ensures a high rolling resistance, which increases fuel consumption, wear and noise emissions.
When Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance is in this respect, an almost perfect balance between the two areas. This is due to the development of Goodyear Activewear Control Technology. A new and innovative tread structure coupled with the high quality rubber compound, the premium manufacturer Goodyear not managed to develop in the course of many years of racing experience, make the EfficientGrip performance to one of the most efficient and safest tyre models of the current summer season.
Goddyear Efficient Grip Performance is impressive in every major tyre tests
In addition to the ADAC and the Auto Bild magazine gives the new summer tyre model Goodyear in its 2013er test a "recommended" rating. be highlighted by the test engineers:
- short braking distances (dry and wet)
- high ride comfort
- Low fuel consumption
Even in the summer tyre test of GTÜ and ACE convinced the EfficientGrip Performance, occupied by the Dunlop Sport BluResponse and Vredestein Sportrac 5 third. The podium bestow the premium car tyres in particular its high resistance to aquaplaning (safe handling on wet surfaces), and low rolling resistance.
The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance brings the US manufacturer for the summer season 2013 a car tyre on the market, which counts both on dry and on wet at the best current models. In addition, the tyre convinces with low fuel consumption and long service life.
