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 57% (breakdown) while driving a Ford S Max (225/50 R17 W) on mostly town for 7,000 average miles
7k miles completed. THese are the heavy load version Excessive wear on the fronts. Minimal wear on the rears. Front outer edges completely worn. Tracking and balancing are not the cause. Looosing approx. 6 psi from the fronts during the course of a month.

Given 87% (breakdown) while driving a Toyota Corolla (205/55 R16 V) on mostly motorways for 15,000 average miles
Very good in dry and wet conditions. The only thing i have to mention is that the side wall of the tyre is so soft and in continuing open turns you dont have the right feedback. You feel that the car is starting to slide and you try all the time to correct it. You dont feel so sure if you try to turn with a few km more. Safe tyre but with no confidence. I didnt see any "performance" even from the first km.

Given 90% (breakdown) while driving a Subaru Legacy (225/45 R17) on mostly town for 6,000 easy going miles
Had these fitted to my 2001 Subaru Legacy in size 205/55/16 this summer. So far i've got 10000km with them and i hardly see any wear what so ever. I've had two nail punctures while parking in front of my home. Those are not the tire fault, but still subjectively, it is a minus on my buy again criteria. On the road they feel quiet, comfortable and a little bit too flexy. Went through a mountain pass and on the corners i could feel the tire flexing two much. I've driven dirt roads and had no issues, also on the sandy beach, the car holds its own. On the motorway those have great rolling qualities and while being soft, they don't heat up as much as my old ones(by far). This is great as they don't become sticky and the "miles per gallon" are kept high.

Overall: Great tires for good money, but could be better, if they had stiffer sidewalls. I would buy them again, if not for wanting to try other brands summer tires. I like to compare things myself.

Given 81% (breakdown) while driving a Mercedes Benz B200cdi (225/45 R17) on a combination of roads for 3,000 spirited miles
I bought this tire in 205/55/r16. The tire is very comfortable, but this means that the side wall flexes. The dry grip is awesome under hard braking on a relativly un-worn asphalt it breaks witouth ABS ( if you could modulate the brake) in very short distance. The wet braking is very good. so is the traction. The tires are soft, and when they heat up they become very sticky.
The tire holds very well, but the flaw is the soft/flexy sidewall. Under hard cornering it flexes so much, even at low speed. My recommended pressure for this tire is 30 psi. But when they are at 30 psi they look so under inflated. I pump them to 34 psi and they are wearing even. (soft sidewall).
I think that this tire performs much better than Michelin Primacy or Energy Saver....
Would i buy this tire again? Well in the profile 55 no, because i like to "hunt" for apexes etc.. 225/40-45 Yes.
