Positive - The new EfficientGrip Performance 2 is a very well rounded tyre with excellent grip in the dry and wet, low levels of noise, high levels of comfort, very low rolling resistance and well priced.
Negative - Low aquaplaning resistance and slightly long braking distances in the dry and wet cost it victory.
Overall - An extremely well rounded tyre with no major weaknesses, other than aquaplaning. Good levels of comfort and low fuel use make this an excellent tyre for real world driving.

Been looking for new set of summer tyres after decided to change my wheels size too, I went from 17Ē wheels down to 16Ē and fitted new set of Goodyear efficient grip performance 2, latest model tyres, they were made in week 7 of 2020 and I fitted them in week 8 of 2020, absolutely brand new and fresh rubber. So far so good, traveled around 1000 miles and tyres are excellent, performance, comfort, even though they are smaller size there is no negative performance, corners great, braking in both dry and wet is good, car feels very positive to drive , noise level also good. This is the first review of these new model efficient grip performance as other reviews are for the older model, I been using the previous egp for years and now I think my tyres for the next few years are exactly those especially if they last as they are advertised . Highly recommend to try them. They are made in Germany too. 👍
These tyres transformed my car. I have always had Pirelli P7 Cinturato for several years. They were very noisy, especially the rears. I was convinced my wheel bearings were worn or that it was just poor soundproofing on my car, but I was wrong. I could not get the Pirellis this time and was recommended the Goodyear's. I needed all 4. All the road noise completely disappeared and the car handles and drives better than ever in all conditions. I have not done enough miles to comment on wear yet, but even if they wear worse than the Pirellis, I will 100 percent buy again.
Trying to pick the very best all season tyre? Watch this!
Bare in mind my driving style isn't sporty/aggressive, so between 50-100 kph normal road 120-130 on the highway and smooth on steering and right foot.
After around 300km I wasn't fully happy about the tires. Yes they do a pretty good job reproducing the sensations from the wheels to the steering, but I also felt them too sticky (almost as having gum at your shoes), and that made me feel less confident on cornering. So the first impressions were, Michelin Power Saver that I had were smoother and better.
But on my last trip (~200km), and here I don't know if I'm already used to the tires or if it could be related with the tire gum, but I had all the right sensations going straight or cornering. I even got some rain (enough to make the road more slippery) and they kept doing their job without struggling.
Globally I'm very happy with that choice. They're a good tire with good handling and nice fuel consumption saving.

Hello I am from Cyprus and my car is Audi A3 sportback. I have before Chinese tyres davandi and after intertrac tyres. Very bad tyres donít buy this brands. After that I decided to buy a better tyres. For the last 3 years I used them Continental contisport contact 5. It was good tyres I donít have anything bad to say about this tyres. After the Continental I did my research and I decided to buy the Goodyear efficiendgrip performance 2. I have this tyres 1 month now and itís absolutely amazing tyres. I donít Know yet for the wet grip and for the wear. I pushed my car to the limits and my tyres give me a very good feeling they give me confidence a safety filing. I have to say itís very comfortable tyres I donít feel the pumps and the bad roads in Cyprus and itís very silently too I donít hear anything to the cabin. I will give a better review in 6 months. I am sorry for my bad English
I was on Micheline energy savers. Changed to these goodyears after 45k km. In the dry, the goodyears were quieter from low speeds to high (max of 105km/h). My steering is usually dull, but with these there is much more directness, and a tiny bit more feel. In the wet, braking is excellent, can corner with confidence. One gripe would be that perhaps the tires are too soft. I feel a bit more lean in the corners, but bear in mind im riding on 16inch wheels.
