Goodyear has been manufacturing tyres for the last 115 years and is globally one of the most recognised tyre brands. In November 1898, Goodyear began its production with a line of bicycle and carriage tyres - Just 18 years later the company was fast becoming the world’s leading Tyre Company. Goodyear's has always been devoted to advancing tyre technology and looking to lead the way in driving excellence. At the forefront of advancements in new tyre technologies, with a drive to focus on environmental issues, Goodyear has developed technologies such as 3D-BIS technology which increases the rubber to road contact, as well as others such as Active Braking technology and Fuel Saving Technology. The Goodyear brand offers a variety of tyres for all kinds of vehicles and driving needs and can also boast that they are original equipment for manufacturers such as BMW, Audi and Mercedes.

Saves fuel, saves money, better for the environment.
Use less fuel, get more performance.
Using the latest developments in manufacturing techniques and advanced materials, our Goodyear engineers have developed a FuelSaving technology to reduce fuel consumption without reducing performance. EfficientGrip tyre’s lightweight structure is fabricated from innovative materials including a new generation of tread compound that helps reduce the amount of energy needed
to propel the tyres. In short this tyre is one of the environment’s best friends.
But don’t just take our word for it.
Independent performance tests by German testing and certification company TUV SUD Automotive, have found that the Goodyear EfficientGrip performs exceptionally:
- 1.9% more fuel efficiency*
- 2% shorter braking distance on wet and dry*
- 8% more mileage (driven axle)*
- 49% more mileage (non-driven axle)*
*Compared to the average performance of 4 leading competitors. Tested by TUV SUD Automotive in March 2009. Tyre size 205/55R16. Test car: VW Golf. Report # 76236753

Excellent wet performance
Designed with a new tread design, the EfficientGrip Compact offers shorter braking distances on both wet and dry surfaces. Featuring dual wide grooves, extra-large sipes and multiple biting edges, this tyre can cut through surface water for improved braking in the wet. Furthermore, it offers greater resistance to aquaplaning thanks to its rounder, cavity shape which prevents the accumulation of water.
Improved Fuel Efficiency
The EfficientGrip Compact also offers improved fuel efficiency and mileage making it an economical and environmentally friendly tyre. This is because this tyre is constructed specifically to reduce overall tyre weight by 5% for improved rolling resistance. In turn, this results in better fuel efficiency and even tyre wear, helping to prolong the life of your tyres.
|Dual wide groves||Shorter braking distances|
|Multiple biting edges||Improved braking in wet|
|Stiffer tread design||Even tyre wear|

Eagle F1 Asymmetric
The High performance tyre for high performance cars.
The asymmetric Eagle F1 has been developed specifically with high performance, luxury cars in mind. These cars demand a tyre that’s responsive to their predictive safety systems and keeps their raw power under control. Roll on the Goodyear Eagle F1, a tyre that balances performance and control in equal measure.
More Grip, more of the time.
The Eagle F1 combines our revolutionary Active Cornergrip Technology with compounds derived from our racing pedigree. The result is a tyre that distributes pressure evenly when cornering at high speeds and that means you’ve got more tyre in contact with the road more o the time (versus the previously produced Eagle F1 GSD3).
|Revolutionary asymmetric tread design and construction

Long lasting performance.
The tyre that keeps gripping.
The Goodyear OptipGrip tyre offers you excellent performance for longer. Its longevity comes thanks to SmartWear technology – as the tyre wears, hidden channels below the tread surface are revealed so new grooves come into contact with the driving surface. This in effect replaces the tread keeping the tyre’s water evacuation extremely efficient and reduces the likelihood of aquaplaning.
Wet or dry.
Combined with its dual-layered compound for high levels of grip and vehicle control in the wet and a 3D interlocking mechanism to maximise handling and mileage in the dry, and this is the tyre that offers you consistent function over its lifetime.

The tyre a puncture can’t stop.
A puncture is every motorist’s worst nightmare. Crouching by the roadside changing the wheel, you’re going nowhere fast. Fortunately, Goodyear are making that a thing of the past with RunOnFlat tyres.
RunOnFlat technology reinforces the sidewalls of the tyre, when a puncture happens, the sidewalls don’t collapse like they would normally, which means that the tyre stays on the rim and will carry your car for up to 50 miles (at 50 mph).
Many leading car manufacturers such as BMW, Mercedes, Ford and Range Rover now it these tyres as either a standard or option fit. For drivers who choose RunOnFlat the benefits are outstanding:
- Enhanced control even after a motorway blow out
- Keeps control even when cornering
- You keep on the road and make that meeting or important appointment
- The simple convenience of getting to your destination without delay
- RunOnFlat allows you to choose when and where to repair or replace your punctured tyre
- You won’t have to worry about dirtying your hands or clothes
- You’ll also save a good deal of room in the boot, as you won’t need to continue to lug along a spare
GOODYEAR RUNONFLAT TYRES SHOULD ONLY BE MOUNTED ON CARS DESIGNED FOR RUN FLAT TYRES AND EQUIPPED WITH A FULLY OPERATING PRESSURE MONITORING SYSTEM DEVICE.
