Announcing the launch of the EfficientGrip Performance 2 tire, Goodyear is showcasing industry leading performance credentials with this new high-performance tire. Positioned as the successor to the widely praised EfficientGrip Performance, the tire is aimed at motorists with 15 – 18 inch rims looking for high mileage and high levels of performance across wet and dry braking.

The tire boasts an impressive, estimated 50% higher mileage than its predecessor(3), while also outperforming Michelin, its closest tested competitor(1), in mileage tests by 20%. The independent tests by TÜV SÜD also recorded the shortest braking distances on wet and dry roads compared to four tested competitors(2).

 “The new EfficientGrip Performance 2 offers a solution without compromises for consumers who want the highest possible mileage from their tires while maintaining a high level of performance", said Xavier Fraipont, VP EMEA Product Development for Goodyear. “Thanks to the technological advancements achieved by our team of designers and engineers, consumers will be able to enjoy additional mileage1 with our EfficientGrip Performance 2 tires. This achievement is something we are very proud of; not only can motorists enjoy enhanced performance, but they will help the environment too by getting extended life out of the tire1.” 

A number of innovative features allow the tire to provide this increased mileage1 while delivering a high level of performance:

  • High tread elasticity and flexibility assists with less tire wear caused by rough road conditions, without compromising on wet and dry performance.
  • An increased number of longer gripping edges combined with optimized compound stiffness, improves water evacuation and shortens braking distances on wet surfaces.
  • Large ribs at the center of the tread ensure greater stiffness – enabling improved stability in emergency handling situations.

The Goodyear EfficientGrip Performance 2 is available in 45 sizes.
