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.

Top Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance Reviews

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 80% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Suberb MkII (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 38,000 easy going miles
Very pleased with these. I am a gentle driver and do lots of motorway miles and these tyres will last me 40-45k miles having done 38k so far. I like that they are quiet and provide good grip wet or dry. Will buy again.

Given 84% (breakdown) while driving a Kia Motors (205/55 R16 V) on a combination of roads for 6,000 average miles
I've had these tyres on my old car, Kia Ceed, drip grip, wet grip, road feel, comfort, etc were excellent, however, the tyre structure feels quite soft, always worried that it'll get damaged by kerbing. Drove 6000 miles on then before I sold the car, hardly noticed any wear on them.
I now have Yokohama AE50 tyres on my new car, a Civic, it feels far more lighter then goodyears, and steering feels more vague with Yokohamas. However, the Yokohamas have a harder tyre structure, and has less road feedback, which I don't like.
Between them two, I would choose the goodyears for comfort, grip and handling

Latest Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance Reviews

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Superb II combi 2.0 tdi cr (225/45 R17 W) on mostly motorways for 39,573 easy going miles
After lots of reading I had these fitted in February 2014. They ran a total of 798 days, for 39573 miles, when I had a blowout on the motorway. No idea what caused the initial puncture.

Thread had still another 5-6.000 miles on them, but I decided to change them for 4 Michelin Primacy 's. This mainly because the last 5-8.000 miles were VERY noisy. So noisy I had the car checked for bad bearings, however turned out the tires were unevenly worn (sawtoothing). Alignment was checked and adjusted BEFORE I had them fitted, and alignment was checked again after diagnosing the problem, and was declared ok. I rotated the wheels front-to-back every 10.000 miles, and they didn't run in winter.

Had alignment checked when fitting the Michelins (and the rim was checked aswell) and all was still in order. Car is quiet again, no more 'singing' noise at certain speeds.

We'll see if the Michelins last as long (they bloody better) and if the sawtoothing returns. MPG is still the same at 64,20MPG measured.

in conclusion, I was very happy with the Goodyears' mileage, handling, price, but the sawtoothing problem was a major pain. What bothers me most is that the definite cause is not known, so I can't do anything to prevent it from happening again with the Michelins. I just hope it was a combination of my car + my driving + my roads + my tires that just didn't work out.

IF the sawtoothing hadn't happened, I would have fitted them again.

Fuel efficient, less noisy but grip is not very good. Replaced after 21K miles.

Given 86% (breakdown) while driving a Volvo V60 D3 (235/40 R18 W) on mostly motorways for 20,000 average miles
My car was delivered to me with Conty 5 and those were great for spirited driving but way too stiff on b-roads, junctions, steps in the city etc. Moreover, not impressive on wet. I live in Switzerland and bulk of the mileage is a weekly commute of 400+ km motorway journey weekly, plus some transfers toward the seaside and mountain trips.
GY Efficient Grip has been a sensible solution to improve comfort with no compromise for normal use. I tried both on autobahn and indeed the Conty are better when speeding. Nonetheless, found that superior there only and pretty happy of the change: comfort, wear, noise. mpg all improved in this order.
