The EfficientGrip SUV is the fuel-saving SUV tyre that brakes shorter.
Based on FuelSaving Technology that has proven its effectiveness in the award winning* passenger tyre EfficientGrip, Goodyear has developed the EfficientGrip SUV. This SUV tyre combines the highly comfortable ride of an SUV vehicle with lower environmental impact. Thanks to the use of innovative technologies and materials Goodyear engineers have combined high performance: shorter braking distance on dry and wet roads and improved steering precision and handling, with lower fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and low noise**, all benefits that positively impact both your wallet and the environment. Reducing the impact on the environment without compromising on performance, makes the EfficientGrip SUV the perfect choice for every SUV driver.
Fuel-saving design. Reduce your fuel stops and CO2 emissions with the EfficientGrip SUV. Goodyear’s FuelSaving Technology combines a lightweight structure with advanced materials that lower rolling resistance. The result is a tyre that moves more efficiently, leaving a lighter impact on your wallet and the environment.
Shorter braking distance on wet and dry roads. Benefit from shorter braking, come rain or shine.*Special traction resins in the tread deliver increased grip when stopping in the wet. The tread pattern features 3-dimensional shoulder blades that enhance braking grip on dry roads.
Long-lasting. The EfficientGrip SUV gives you more mileage between tyre changes. Its silica tread compound keeps the tyre working for longer, saving you money.
Improved steering precision and handling. Enjoy responsive steering and handling, thanks to the EfficientGrip SUV’s lower weight and an optimised design that maintains tyre stiffness around bends.

Since 1st November, 2012 all tyres made after 1st July, 2012 must show the European Tyre Label.
The European Union has developed this new provision to promote economic and ecological efficiency and ensure road safety.
Disadvantages The Tyre Label can provide an overview and give the customer more transparency, but it only covers three criteria. For an extensive evaluation of a tyre, however, far more performance characteristics are relevant. Especially in the search for suitable winter tyres the test results from different test institutions such as the ADAC are much more stringent.
We'd like to point out that it is the manufacturer that labels the tyre and provides us with this information. If you do not find the label values, either the manufacturer did not inform us of the label, or the product was manufactured before July, 2012. Before that date, tyres had not yet been required to carry a label, so in some cases it is possible to purchase a tyre without a Tyre Label.
The tyres are classified in terms of three performance characteristics:
• Fuel Efficiency (letters A to G)
• Wet Grip (letters A to G)
• External Noise
Finally, it is the driver that determines the fuel consumption. In order to reduce this over the long-term, by being careful during acceleration drivers can become more fuel-efficient and environmentally conscious.
Regularly checking tyre pressure helps to improve rolling resistance, reduces energy loss, and supports optimum adhesion in wet conditions. To reduce the risk of accidents and ensure your and the safety of other road users, always keep a reasonable distance.

The classification in terms of fuel efficiency is divided into seven classes, from the A-class (the highest) to G-class (the
lowest). A tyre in the A-class consumes 0.1 litres less at 100km than a tyre in the B-class. An essential component for fuel
efficiency is the rolling resistance or rolling friction.
Rolling resistance is the force that opposes motion. It is formed, for example, when a wheel is rolling. Rolling resistance depends not only on the geometry but also on the properties of the material.
Average Average value is between C-E. Class D is not used.
It shows how efficient the vehicle can brake on wet roads. Wet grip is an important feature especially with summer tyres.
Class A has the highest safety and the shortest braking distances. Class F has low security and the longest braking distance.
The wet grip classes are based on test driving on wet roads with a speed of approximately 80 km/h. The difference between the braking distance of the tyres is 3-5 feet per grade. E.g., the difference in braking distance between Class A and Class F are up to 18 metres.
Average The average value of the tyres is between class B-E. Class D and G is not used.
The symbol indicates the external rolling noise in decibels and as a 3 class sound wave symbol to clarify whether the tire can
keep the recommended level. External rolling noise does not correspond to tyre noise inside the compartment.
A continuous sound level above 80 decibel can cause health problems.
Three sound waves symbolize the worst results. These are the tyres that exceed the maximum limit of approval. A symbol of 2 sound waves have noise level that corresponds with the approved sound level. Tyres that are marked with 1 sound wave are over three decibel quieter than the approval.
