- EU Tyre Label:
Introducing the EfficientGrip from Goodyear, the tyre choice for reduced fuel consumption without reducing other performances. It has the great handling and braking qualities you'd expect from a Goodyear tyre, while providing excellent mileage and reduced fuel consumption due to its outstanding rolling resistance. The new EfficientGrip with its FuelSaving Technology provides enhanced driving performance while also doing its bit for the environment - and at the same time, your wallet! The Goodyear EfficientGrip has been independently tested by the German Testing and Certification Company TÜV SÜD Automotive which measured the advantages* of EfficientGrip over 4 leading competitors.
- The fuel-saving tire that keeps performing for longer
- Fuel-saving and environmentally friendly
- Long lasting better braking on wet roads

The fuel-saving tyre that keeps performing for longer
The EfficientGrip is the long-lasting tyre that saves you fuel without sacrificing performance.
- Fuel-saving and environmentally friendly
- Long lasting
- Better braking on wet roads
- Quiet, comfortable ride
Fuel-saving and environmentally friendly. Save on petrol and leave a smaller carbon footprint with the EfficientGrip, featuring FuelSaving Technology. Combining a lightweight structure with an advanced tread compound, the EfficientGrip needs less energy to make it roll. The result is lower fuel costs – and CO2 emissions – on every journey.
Eco-friendly performance The EfficientGrip tyre uses Goodyear's FuelSaving technology to help you reduce your carbon footprint on the road. The tyre uses less energy overall due to its light structure and specially designed silica tread compound, which means you can save on fuel – and do your part for the environment – all from the comfort of your car.
Smooth and comfortable Enjoy a smooth, comfortable ride on every journey thanks to EfficientGrip's block design, which cancels out excess noise for a more pleasant driving experience.
Durable and long lasting The EfficientGrip's tread is made with a tough silica compound that helps it work harder for longer, so you can get in more Eco-friendly performance The mileage before having to change the tyre.
Quick braking in wet conditions Even in the wettest of weather conditions, the specially designed tread on Goodyear's EfficientGrip keeps you firmly in control. With blades arranged to shed water, this tyre design offers much shorter braking distances than other, similar tyres.*
Long lasting. The EfficientGrip gives you more mileage between tyre changes. Its silica tread compound keeps the tyre working for longer, saving you money.
Better braking on wet roads. With a unique tread surface and a blade arrangement that sheds water, the EfficientGrip offers better wet performance and shorter braking distances than other tyres in its class.*
Quiet, comfortable ride. Enjoy comfortable journeys thanks to the noise-reducing block design.

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.
The exact size of a tyre can be found on its sidewall.
