Given 94% while driving a Hyundai Accent (175/70 R13 T) on a combination of roads for 40,000 spirited miles
still have these tires from 2013 and will change them on oct 2019 after summer. 6 years now only one flat, they still have road life on them, will change them for age as i usually change them every 4 years, the funny thing they still act like new they not lost control or grip so i kept them for another 2 years .. yes yes , i will buy them again

Given 81% while driving a Nissan Note 1.5 dci (225/45 R17) on mostly country roads for 0 average miles
Very quite tyres and very comfortable especially in bad roads.My second car is a Nissan note dci and the dimension of the tyres is 185-65-15.After 40000km with continental premium 5 I change them with Goodyear and I was astonished with the lower noise level and from the comfort driving.Ok in high speeds in highways continental is a bit better tyre but not so balanced as Goodyear.

Given 87% while driving a Chevrolet KALOS (175/70 R13 T) on a combination of roads for 10,000 spirited miles
i think a tire must be revied even by country, i live in Athens Greece, hot summer and not very cold winter as other countries, i can say goodyear is one of the best tires i ever had, low noise good handling and braking, good grip on dry road avarage on wet road , in greece we park everyware, even on pavements etc, this tire has good side walls no buldges etc, will buy again hope goodyear does not change the tire compount to something worst

installed my tires end of 2013 now its june 2017 after 22,000 km all i can say rear tires are like new and the front are worn out half way, when new this was a good tire on dry and wet road, after 3,5 years i can say they are now VERY dangerous in the wet and its summer, cannot imagine if it was winter, on my car i have used hankook, avon, continental, these are the worst tires after 3 year life this is a 3 year tire, all tires work fine when new the problem starts when they get old , will never buy again

Given 100% while driving a Daihatsu Sirion (175/65 R14 T) on mostly motorways for 720 spirited miles
This tyre is for a compact car, which mine is - the clue is in the name of the tyre. And I am happy to say this is the nicest tyre I have had on this car - and I have owned this car for many years. I drive 15,000 miles a year and like to get going - know what I mean. The car is a Daihatsu Sirion 1.5sx, and it is quick. Big engine in small/light-weight car. I am 61 years of age by the way. The car is over-maintained and the suspension and running gear is kept in top condition. Owning my car is a hobby.


Pirellis came off and the car has come alive. No more lack of direction and wandering around - the car holds a line. Even under heavy braking it is arrow straight. Blissful.

As for grip all I can say is they do feel like a softer compound and unlike my Pirellis they don't let go when pulling away from a stop in the wet. The car in question may be small but with a very torquey 1.5l engine it will pop a wheelie in the wet without even trying. So on that basis they grip well in the wet.

I recently removed a front wheel for some work and the wheel/tyre assembly was definitely not as heavy as the Pirelli unit before. I have read these tyres are lighter and they really do feel lighter. This good for suspension response - un-sprung wieght.

Dry grip is as I would expect - excellent. Once again with the Pirellis it was all felt a bit doubtful, but with these tyres it all holds together. With the Pirellis I always felt the car was going to let go when in a sweeping curve or bend - it never did but it just "felt" awkward. That sensation has gone away with the Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact tyre.

They are astonishingly quiet too. I could not believe the difference. That soft compound certainly has an effect on noise. The car feels much more comfortable all round.

As for wear rate I can't tell at only 700 miles. But would I care if they wore out after 25000 miles - of course I wouldn't. At £49 each fitted why would I worry, especially as I have all the other great benefits of this tyre. It is as if someone has hand made a tyre to suit my car. I look forward to having a new set.

Like shoes on your feet, car tyres all do the same job but occasionally we get a set that just seems right and become a favourite. This tyre is right for my car. No doubt. I like them a lot.
