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 87% (breakdown) while driving a Skoda Yeti (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 8,000 average miles
Good year Efficient grip performance tyres when compared to the set of hardly worn budget tyres fitted to my used approved vehicle when purchased, are in a different league. The premier league.

For my car they may cost roughly double per corner (approx. £95) compared to a budget brand but at the end of the day, a tyre is the only thing between being on the road or in an accident.

After switching from a part worn budget set (the rears still had 7mm) to the Goodyear EGP’s the differences were simply vast and remain very impressive several thousand miles later. The fronts are now approaching the half way stage, but are still excellent in all areas with improved MPG (approx. 3mpg), reduced road noise and improved refinement (particularly on Motorway), superb wet handling and braking, improved ride quality due to compliant side walls and tramlining completely eliminated from my vehicle. The only slightly negative things I can find to say about them are the wear rate looks a little bit above average and drivers who like to drive believing they are Lewis Hamilton may find them a touch ‘soft’ in the corners, but honestly that is it. The Goodyear EGP’s are some of the best overall tyres I have purchased in over 25 years and hundreds of thousands of miles driving.

Cheap tyres are a false economy which compromise the safety and handling of your vehicle. Don’t compromise and strongly consider these for your vehicle.

Given 76% (breakdown) while driving a Peugeot 308 1.6 HDi (225/45 R17 W) on a combination of roads for 16,000 average miles
Excelent performance both on dry and wet, and quiet on the road. But they lasted only 26.000kms/16.000mls, with normal driving in city and motorways without high speeds. They maintain the good performance till the end, even with it's high wear they have good traction and decent wet behavior.

Given 89% (breakdown) while driving a Honda CR Z (195/55 R16) on mostly country roads for 8,000 spirited miles
I bought these after having Yokohama tyres as standard. First thing i noticed was that the side walls are very soft but this doesn't make them particularly sloppy, instead it allows you to feel the limits of grip very easily and these tyres are very grippy under all areas even though they are rated b for fuel economy which is good! Wet traction is almost as good as dry. also stopping distances in the dry was brilliant. These tyres are also very quiet.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Fiat 500 (185/55 R15) on mostly town for 10,000 average miles
Just a good tyre for a city car like a Fiat 500. Good grip in dry and wet.

Given 67% (breakdown) while driving a Renault Megane (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 24,000 average miles
I drove 80% motorway, 10% city and 10% country roads at normal speed. The tires are better con dry and wet compare Michelín Energy Saber but after 38.000kms the fronter tires hace only 1,6mm. Very high wear.
