Questions and Answers for the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance

2016-04-11 - My question relates to new tyres fitted yesterday at National tyre and Autocare: Goodyear Efficientgrip Performance and the pressure. National tyre and Autocentre told me they always inflate to 34 psi (a National standard). Now my book states recommended is 29 psi (OLD Honda HR-V). The Goodyears are lightish with softish sidewalls and actually so far feel "OK" at this higher pressure. Are National correct to go to 34 psi or should I revert back to manufacturer's setting despite this car being well over 10 years old - when tyres perhaps were more rigid? Hope you can help. Thank you.

Tyre pressure, within reason is largely subjective, however you are correct in thinking modern tyres can require a few more PSI to feel the same as older tyres with stronger sidewalls. Keep an eye on wear to ensure the tyre is wearing evenly, and play around with the pressures until you find a balance you're happy with.


2016-04-17 - Oh...getting judder though the steering wheel at motorway speeds following fitting of fronts. Will take take for balance check. I noticed the whitish paint "dots" on sidewalls (one each tyre) - do these have any significance in their siting?? (Garage says absolutely not). Know in old days red and yellow were said to be aids to balancing... Thank you for your expertise.

The dots can mean a number of things and it will depend on the SKU. For example for Jag OE tyres the dot is there to tell their machines which way to fit the tyres, it can be a different colour dot for other OEMs or it could be for the old fashioned balancing aspect. So, there is not one direct answer for this question, sorry.


2016-12-03 - Hi have inherited a Audi A4 1.9 TDI SE are these tyres ok to use and run on the Audi ?

As long as the size and load rating meets the manufacturer's guide, the Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance is an excellent choice for your Audi A4.

Top Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance Review

Given 100% (breakdown) while driving a Ford ba falcon (215/60 R16) on mostly country roads for 80,000 spirited miles

I live in outback Australia, New South Wales, Tilpa. I have an Australian built Ford Falcon, BA wagon. I had these tyres fitted 6 months ago. I can only say that they are able to handle day temps of 52C, floods, rocky dirt roads and bitumen. Most roads out here are rocky dirt. Never had a puncture. Extreme temps, never had a blow out. Extreme rain, excellent grip and no aqua planning. In the outback, reliability is the difference between reaching your place today and reaching your place in a week, if you are lucky. I highly recommend these tyres to anyone that commands top performance and quality from their tyres.

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Alfa Romeo 1.9 JTD M (225/45 R17) on mostly motorways for 35,476 average miles
Tyres performed pretty well. Was surprised how low the tread was when it came time to replace them as they had worn about 1-2mm deeper than I was expecting them to have done after 12 months motorway driving (compared to some el-cheapo alternatives that I had before), but dry/wet grip and stability was much improved.

Can't say I noticed any difference from the A-rated efficiency or noise categories, so have selected the Goodyear Eagle F1's this time around to try instead.

Overall decent tyre, no major complaints.

Car - VW Golf Mk4 estate 2001 1.9tdi 115.
Factory standard car on 140k miles, but fully sorted and balanced.
Advanced professional driver, car used daily on mixture of journey types including higher speed journeys on autobahn.
Superbly comfortable tyres with low noise at all speeds. During progressive drives tyres afford good grip but being a 65 profile, feel rather squishy, with a fair amount of roll. Please take into account the older model of car when reading this!
Great at dealing with Britains potholed roads!
24100 miles driven over 2 years 8 months. Very good value for money indeed.
Two punctures repaired on both front and rear offside tyres during use. Tyres rotated from front to rear during use. Removed from car at 3.5mm tread remaining.
Replaced with same tyres, says how pleased with these tyres I am!

Given 99% (breakdown) while driving a Audi A3 (225/40 R18 W) on mostly town for 40,000 average miles
These tyres were on the car when I bought the car Jan 2015, Ive only changed them this month jan 2017 Ive gone for the exact same tyres again.
Incredible tyres, the way they are made is fantastic. I recommend watching the full video of the one above.
They are great in the dry, but I think they are better in the wet. In extreme rainy days, through deep puddles at 60mph on the motorway the car holds so well, no aquaplaning at all, superb grip and even better braking.
I drive an Audi A3 2008 and I know the brakes are very good anyway but coupled with these good year tyres my word, you can actually stop on a postage stamp. In the rain.
When I changed the tyres, the garage told me they are 5 years old.
They perform so well right to the end. Petrol consumption is great also. I got them for 115 a tyre fitted, the money saved on petrol plus the life of them, thats a steal.
I always feel safe knowing my car wears these tyres. Conteol assured.

Passed on these tires killometrov 8000. I expected more from them. On a wet road is great, too, with kofortom all ok. But the car's handling is poor. My winter Marshal which is 2 times cheaper rides much better.
