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.
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.
Independent performance tests by German testing and certification company TUV SUD Automotive, have found that the Goodyear EfficientGrip performs exceptionally:

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.
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.
