Goodyear EfficientGrip Cargo seeks lower total cost of ownership

Goodyear’s new light truck tyre lasts over 21,000 km longer than two of its competitors.

EfficientGrip Cargo – beauty shots

Independent tests comparing Goodyear’s new light truck tyres’ mileage capabilities against two of its rivals by auditing body DEKRA** show that the Goodyear EfficientGrip Cargo outperforms the others by an average of 21,475km.

The all new EfficientGrip Cargo has an improved fuel economy, which combined with extra tyre life could offer fleet operators significant savings.

To create the EfficientGrip Cargo, Goodyear engineers made technical improvements to previous tyre compounds for increased wear resistance on abrasive surfaces. They have also enhanced tyre construction with a higher volume of rubber, to optimize solid rib stiffness, contributing to increased tyre life, as well as providing improvements in handling.

Martijn de Jonge, Brand Director Consumer PBU EMEA at Goodyear, said: “Delivering such impressive results in DEKRA tests proves the dedication of our Goodyear engineers.

“As a result of their commitment, we were able to create Extra Mile Technology, not only improving the tyres’ mileage, but also enhancing their performance on wet roads, durability and total cost of ownership.”

The test was carried out between July and October 2016 on a 215/65 R16C 109/107T size tyre on a van with a driven front axle.
