Goodyear Efficient Grip Compact
A tyre designed to last, with outstanding durability and handling. The Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact is a long-lasting tyre with excellent fuel efficiency, wet weather braking and aquaplaning resistance. The EfficientGrip Compact tyre delivers security and comfort with high levels of handling and performance. The lightweight construction enables a low rolling resistance. Special cavity shape, two big circumsferential grooves and blades offer good wet performance.
The fuel-saving tyre for long life and confident wet or dry handling
The new Goodyear EfficientGrip Compact combines high mileage and fuel efficiency with shorter braking distances in wet or dry.
Environmentally friendly. A stiffer tread design reduces rolling resistance, resulting in lower CO2 emissions, while regular wear means longer tyre life and less waste generated.
Shorter braking distances on wet and dry roads. A new tread design features dual wide grooves, extra large sipes and multiple biting edges to cut through surface water for improved braking in the wet.
Better resistance to aquaplaning. A rounder cavity shape stops the accumulation of water in front of the tyre to help prevent aquaplaning.
Improved fuel efficiency and mileage. Advances in tyre components and construction reduce overall tyre weight by 5%* for improved rolling resistance, while optimised pressure distribution promotes even tyre wear.
Better fuel efficiency and value By improving manufacturing materials and techniques, Goodyear have shaved 5%* off the tyre's weight. This reduces rolling resistance, so you'll save on fuel and enjoy better mileage. Improved pressure distribution across the tyre means you'll also benefit from more even wear across the treads.
Environmentally friendly A lower rolling resistance also makes the tyre more eco-friendly, as its lower fuel consumption means less CO2 emissions. Because it wears evenly, the tyre will also need to be replaced less frequently, which helps reduce waste.
Improved braking in all conditions Extra wide grooves and plenty of sharp biting edges for slicing through surface water feature on the EfficientGrip Compact's new tread design, to deliver shorter braking distances in both rainy and dry weather.
Aquaplaning resistance Feel safe on the road in all weathers with tyres designed to reduce aquaplaning. Rounder cavity shapes prevent water from building up in front of the tyre, to reduce the risk of aquaplaning.
*Compared to DuraGrip predecessor.
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.
