Goodyear has launched the new EfficientGrip Performance 2, available in sizes 15–18 inch. The new EfficientGrip Performance 2 tyre is suited to high mileage driving and achieves high levels of performance across wet and dry braking.
According to tests by TÜV SÜD, the new new tyre achieves 50 per cent higher mileage than its predecessor, the EfficientGrip Performance, and can achieve 20 per cent higher mileage than its closest tested competitor.
The independent tests by TÜV SÜD also recorded the shortest braking distances on wet and dry roads compared to four tested competitors.
“The new EfficientGrip Performance 2 offers a solution without compromises for consumers who want the highest possible mileage from their tyres 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 mileage with our EfficientGrip Performance 2 tyres. 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 tyre.”
A number of innovative features allow the tyre to provide this increased mileage while delivering a high level of performance. High tread elasticity and flexibility assists with less tyre wear caused by rough road conditions, without compromising on wet and dry performance.
An increased number of longer gripping edges combined with optimised compound stiffness, improves water evacuation and shortens braking distances on wet surfaces.
Large ribs at the centre of the tread ensure greater stiffness – enabling improved stability in emergency handling situations
